Meet Laura Janota
Digital Marketing Manager
Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
Much like Alice who followed a white rabbit down a rabbit hole and found herself in Wonderland, I started real life as a digital content manager in the Chicago suburbs and followed SEO guru, Sean Francis from our previous place of employment to Blue Magnet Interactive in Chicagoland.
What about Blue Magnet/your role at Blue Magnet do you love most?
My role as Account Manager caters to my kaleidoscopic heart that loves art, writing, science, and meeting remarkable people. Yes, the people I work with are truly remarkable.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
Riding a motorcycle along the entirety of Lake Shore Drive at night. One day, I’ll be in the front seat.
What's a fun fact about you?
I made a Lady Gaga-inspired Doctor Who costume that went viral online in 2010. My little 15 minutes of fame in the nerd world.
If we lived in a world without internet, what would be your alternate career?
I’d probably do exactly what I’m working on now: I’d become a science fiction author, write about space travel, and add to the movement to make larger advances in space exploration technology. With or without the internet, we still have barely touched anything else outside our little world, our “pale blue dot”.
