KEVIN IRELAND | BACK-END INTERN

Kevin

Where ya from? Lexington, KY

Why Ahalogy? Alex Owens told me about the company and when there was an opening, he mentioned me to his manager. I came and interviewed, and I loved the culture from the first time I visited the old office!

You’ve just been given $1,000,000, what do you do with it? Buy a house, a car, a new computer, A DOG, and then save or invest the rest.

If you were stuck on a deserted island, who would you want to bring with you? My wonderful girlfriend, of course!

Where is the most interesting place you've ever been? I haven't traveled a whole lot, so probably Colorado. I climbed a mountain that brought me to just under 10,000 feet!

What's the best dish you know how to cook? Probably my cast iron BBQ mac and cheese.

If you were a contestant on America's Got Talent, what would your talent be? Fire performing! I can breath fire, spin fire staff and do some cool tricks with a fire whip!

And everyone’s favorite question—what’s a fun fact about yourself? I'm really interested in game development and want to pursue it in my free time! I want to create something that someone out there loves as much as I love my favorite game!

 

RYAN MCLAUGHLIN | SENIOR SALES OPERATIONS ANALYST

RyanWhere ya from? Originally Berea, KY

Why Ahalogy? The culture.

Who would play you in a movie about your life? John Cusack.

What's your favorite influencer trend you've seen on social media lately? Primitive Cooking. There's just something compelling about watching someone prepare a tasty meal over a campfire next to a bubbling brook with just a knife and cast iron.

You’ve just been given $1,000,000, what do you do with it? Not much. Maybe pay for some repairs around the house instead of putting them off until I can get to them myself. Then probably set aside college funds for the offspring. Maybe get a newer Jeep. Invest the rest. Boring, I know, but I'm simple.

If you were stuck on a deserted island, who would you want to bring with you? Wilson.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a gold medal for? Flipping bottle caps at targets.

If you were a contestant on America's Got Talent, what would your talent be? Quietly making hilarious comments from somewhere in the back. But it's always organic and spontaneous; I don't think it would translate very well to television.

And everyone’s favorite question—what’s a fun fact about yourself? IDK I can say things about myself, but I wouldn't necessarily label the facts as "fun." This might be a cop-out but I stand behind it.

 

MAURA QUINN MANOR - THE FIRST | PAID MEDIA GRAPHIC DESIGNER

MauraWhere ya from? Aurora, IN! I just moved back to the Cincy area after living in Chicago for the past 2 years.

Why Ahalogy? The gosh darn people. I love getting to collaborate with amazingly creative humans.

Who would play you in a movie about your life? Joaquin Phoenix. I love a method actor.

You’ve just been given $1,000,000, what do you do with it? Pamper my pup. Buy a tiny home. Get way too many more tattoos. Move to Colorado. Smile a lot.

What's your favorite influencer trend that you've seen on social media lately? Everything vegan! I'm a vegetarian so I LOVE that people are embracing #meatlessmondays and the like.

What are you currently bingeing on Netflix? Everything. I was a film minor so I have to be up to date on everything. It's a curse.

What's at the top of your bucket list right now? Adopting more fur-babes and taking them all over the country with me.

And everyone’s favorite question—what’s a fun fact about yourself? I've been to 32 Dave Matthews Band concerts.

 

MEGAN FOLTZ | PAID MEDIA STRATEGIST

MeganWhere ya from? Kentucky.

Why Ahalogy? Ahalogy's mission statement is "Ahalogy exists to make the web more meaningful by making creators more empowered, brands more authentic, and content more beautiful." That, along with the culture, resonated with me and I knew this was a place that I wanted to be a part of.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a gold medal for? Guessing the plot of a movie. It's a weird skill that my friends do not appreciate, but I'm oddly good at it.

You’ve just been given $1,000,000, what do you do with it? Of course all of the practical stuff, but then I would use the rest to attend concerts!

Where is the most interesting place you've ever been? I love to travel and have actually been to more places abroad than in the US. London is one of my favorite cities, but Iceland is definitely one of the coolest places I've ever been!

What are you currently bingeing on Netflix? It's not on Netflix, but I'm currently rewatching The Mindy Project on Hulu! 10/10 would recommend.

What's at the top of your bucket list right now? Traveling and going to music festivals. I'm going to Hangout Fest this year and it will be my first full-on festival. I'm so excited!!

And everyone’s favorite question—what’s a fun fact about yourself? My birthday is the day before Halloween. It's not that cool, but everyone likes to make a joke about it. Maybe don't use this one in the blog since it's very boring. Haha! (Editor's Note: Sorry, Megan!)
