A Few Words About Leslie
Leslie has mad respect for rhythm. Be it through proverb or poetry, speech or storytelling, hip-hop or harmony—well-delivered words make her heart skip a beat.
And don’t get us started on her dance moves.
She snagged her first award for a written performance at age nine: First place in a poetry contest. (Yes, she can still recite it by heart.) A few years later found Leslie nursing an addiction to music videos. She perched by the VCR, waiting to press record and capture the lyrics—and choreography—that brought her favorite songs to life. Naturally, she snagged a few commercials in the process, and couldn’t resist dissecting those too. Soon, she fell in love with another art form: creative persuasion. Forget dreamboats. Our gal was more interested in timing and delivery.
Speaking of timing, we couldn’t have chosen a better moment to ink Leslie’s name on the redpepper roster.
After six years of honing her business skills in both media and account service roles, Leslie finally found her path back to the creative side. In fact, you might say Leslie’s pencil has been sharpened from all angles. From crafting content plans to writing the content itself, she’s truly a versatile creative (our favorite kind).
When Leslie’s not developing web copy, concepting campaigns or polishing her latest short story, she’s finding new ways to use words as currency. For example, when she needed a new laptop, she tracked down a poetry contest boasting a MacBook as the prize.
We’ll give you two guesses as to who took it home.
