Holly wears glasses, wields commas. Has a sensitive nose.
Holly's role at Paper Darts combines the solitary and pseudo-social. She copyedits all print and online content, weighs in on everything that comes through the slush pile, and helps to mold Paper Darts through developmental edits and solicitations. Holly steers Paper Darts' marketing and social media ship—tweeting, Facebooking, pinning, and mistaking Internet engagement for actually meeting people. By day, Holly is the Communications and Accounts Manager at Lake Street Council. When not working or Paper Darting, she lines her wallet with freelance writing and editing and is as likely to pick up a video game in her downtime as a book. Maybe a bit more likely to pick up a video game than a book, truth be told.
Who was your least favorite Ninja Turtle and why?
Leonardo. Like all “straight man” leader types, he made the least impact. Michelangelo was by far the most annoying Turtle, but at least he had personality! Liking Leonardo is like saying Blossom is your favorite Powerpuff Girl. Or Harry Potter is your favorite character in Harry Potter. Unforgiveable, even if you’re under the age of 12.
What profession, other than your own, would you like to attempt?
Marine biologist or astrophysicist, depending on the day. Maybe if this economic slump forces me back into school, I can make one of those a reality. If only I wasn't so dependent on calculators.
What song will they play at your funeral?
Given that the future will have finally arrived by then, it will probably be a Pogo-style remix of every word I’ve said in a recording.
If you had to smell like one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Coconut, probably. Or a bit like sunscreen.
Which popular (or unpopular, we love jocks and nerds equally) 90s cartoon character best represents you?
Courage the Cowardly Dog. That’s late ’90s, but it counts. I embarrass easily and have a hard time putting myself out there, which I get called upon to do an awful lot. No aliens or monsters involved, but—can’t have it all. Additionally, I grew up in a town very similar to Nowhere, Kansas.
