Meet the Team: Leah McCann
Leah is a copywriter at THE rAVe Agency.
What is one thing people might not know about you? My first job out of college was an internship at a music publication that began as a Grateful Dead tape-trading magazine. I learned a lot about jam bands that summer — namely Phish and their respective possums. That summer, I saw maybe 40 or 50 bands at music festys and concerts and have since clocked in maybe 100 performances? I love live music.
What does your ideal weekend look like? My ideal weekend is a mix of rest and play. Friday is usually a night in with a movie and puppy snuggles. Saturday is something active, like soccer or hiking, then I’m zonked out because I’m not 23 anymore. Sunday is watching the SNL episode from the night before. If you can stay up that late and not be a zombie the next day, I commend you.
Favorite state to travel to in the United States? Alabama. Home of my grandma, my favorite aunt (shh) and the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum. (Nerd fact: the Fitzgeralds resided in Montgomery from 1931 until 1932, writing portions of their respective novels like Tender Is The Night while living there.)
If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be and why? Mexican food. It’s delicious, and it reheats great the next day.
What is your favorite part about working at rAVe? Tough one. I love doing a little bit of everything. Even though my title is copywriter, I’m often editing or offering strategy ideas on projects. I love both the creative side and the business side, so rAVe really lets me spread my wings like the Nelly Furtado song you can’t get out of your head.
