As we grow and expand our team and set our sights on new objectives in 2021, we want to celebrate our new Video/Content intern, Matt Buzalewski. He is optimistic that this year will bring about new growth not only for AK, but for himself as well. Get to know more about Matt with an employee spotlight!
Q: What is your role at AK?
I am the new Video/Content Intern for AK and I will be collaborating with the marketing team in creating a variety of video content for our social media and web channels. That includes planning and writing scripts, shooting the videos, and editing them in post production.
Q: Where did you go to school?
I just graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with a degree in Cinema and Media Culture. College was hard at times; there were sleepless nights, and the winters were cold, but I came out the other end as a smarter and better person. I’m ready to take my knowledge to the next level!
Q: What is your favorite part about your job?
Collaborating with a team of driven individuals. There’s nothing more rewarding then learning from others and growing as a person and employee. I also get to do the one thing I love, creating videos. It will be an exciting challenge creating professional content suitable for AK’s social media and web channels.
Q: What do you like to do outside of work?
I love watching TV shows and movies in my spare time! I’m really excited to see all the new movies coming out this year that have been delayed because of covid. I also occasionally film and edit my own projects, and have recently begun to dabble in animation.
Q: Tell us something about yourself people may not know?
I’m originally from South Carolina! I moved up north around 6 years ago, and I’m basically Minnesotan at this point. I still can’t bring myself to call soda pop though.
Q: What’s your favorite TV Show?*
I’ve been a pretty religious watcher of Saturday Night Live. There’s also a show on Netflix called Outer Banks that’s definitely my cup of tea.
Q: What is your favorite musician/band?*
Summer Salt is a band I’ve discovered recently. They have this really laid back summer vibe, the kind of sound you just want to soak in.
Q: If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be?*
All it’s takes for me to be happy is being at a beach. It doesn’t really matter what beach either, I’m not picky. But if I had to choose, probably Fiji.
