Meet Erika @jj_editor_erika. What can I say about Erica? Just one thing. I hate her. Yes, you’ve read right. I hate her. But why?, She’s so nice to everyone, always supportive and willing to lend a hand… Not to mention her exquisite and well curated editor’s gallery She has the most wonderful collages you will find. So, why do I hate her? Simple. Because she’s so perfect! Just kidding, Erika. ;-)
You know it’s quite the opposite and that I feel a deep admiration for you as a friend and for your work, both personal and your editing. Well, let’s begin… This time our interviews are back in the USA. Erika is from Boston. She has been on Instagram two years now. She has a beautiful, 35 year, love story with her husband that started in High School and gave her a happy family with two daughters and a goldendoodle named Mickey. She has a bachelors degree in Business-Marketing with a minor in International Business. This business knowledge has been helpful. Her husband and her own two contemporary american restaurants.
Erika was an Interior Designer for years. Now I understand that sensibility and attention to detail you find in both her personal gallery @ack_bos and in her work as an editor.
Erika describes herself as a generous person. And I couldn’t agree more, because I’ve had the chance to see it myself. Don’t compliment her on something she has, because she actually may just give it to you. Her own words.
Favorite pastimes? Cooking, decorating, yoga, boating, dancing, watching hockey and basketball… You need a 26 hours day to do all this, Erika! But her favorite pastime is laughing. And this says a lot about her. One of the most happy people I’ve met on #JJ. Family and happiness. These are two words that come to mind after Erika’s interview. She told me that she loves puppies, the smell of a baby’s head (me too! ) or children’s laughter. Fresh cut flowers, the summer breeze, the sound of the ocean… I feel like watching a TV commercial for hair conditioner! ;-) She said she loves joking too, so I hope she liked that one. Her favorite destinations have always been the Greek Islands, Turks and Caicos and Nantucket. Erika would be happy if she lived in the Mediterranean. Blue and white everywhere.
Her favorite books? Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” and anything written by Wally Lamb and Kaled Hosseini. My wife is a huge fan of Hosseini too! Her favorite movie, “Good Will Hunting”. And her favorite quote: “Be present in all things and thankful for all things.”
Well… That’s Erika @ack_bos. One of our great JJ editors. So glad to meet you! I’ve been looking straight in your eyes and with a great smile while reading and writing about you. Because I know you value it.
