McCanners of MPLS | Kirsten Erickson

Welcome to McCanners of MPLS, a short feature on the great people that help make up our agency. 


How long have you been at McCann and what do you do here? I’ve been here for a little over a year. I started out as a media intern and now work as a media strategist for the Johnsonville and Caboodles team

Have you ever cut your own hair? I cut my own bangs (and hold my breath the entire time, every time)

Favorite go-to drink? Barefoot Moscato. I like the cheap stuff!

Best date spot in MPLS? Betty Danger’s for that ferris wheel life

What movie makes you cry/laugh? Titanic makes me weep every time. Come on, there was so enough room on that door for both of them.

Name 3 things on your bucket list: Backpacking through Europe, seeing Bon Iver in concert and reading the whole Game of Thrones series.

Who are your creative heroes? Donald Glover, JK Rowling, and Peggy Olson

Favorite quote? “Nevertheless, she persisted”

What do you enjoy most when you’re not working? Seeing friends and family, especially if eating food is involved. Also, running with a good podcast in to work off said food.

Go-to karaoke song? I only like Taylor Swift songs a couple of drinks in, so therefore, anything by Taylor Swift.

Favorite curse word? It rhymes with hit and works in just about any situation.
