Why did you start Scout Sixteen?
Before blogging, I did social media for e-commerce websites, but I needed a place to have my creativity live. So Scout Sixteen was born. The name is a combination of the childhood nickname that my grandfather gave me (Scout, like the character in “To Kill a Mockingbird”) and the age I was when I first came to New York City.
What do you love about what you do?
When I started my blog, I had no intention of it going anywhere, but when it did, it was a happy surprise. Now I get to meet an insane amount of people every day, whether it’s a reader who comes up to me on the street, another blogger, or a creative type. My day is very much centered around creativity, sociability, and partnership. I love that community aspect of it.
