Going Back to Callie

Curious to know who’s behind The MOD Studio’s Content Generation and Copywriting services? Meet Callie Currier, our resident Copywriter and Marketing guru. We got the lowdown on what inspired her to pursue a career in writing, her inspiration and some more fun facts (like why she can never ever meet Tom Hanks). Get to know Callie!
1. What inspired your career path?
I’ve always had a need to express myself creatively. When I realized that I’m a below average singer, equally mediocre dancer and can only seem to draw basic shapes and stick figures, I explored writing and really found a passion for it. The thing I love most about writing is the challenge of finding the perfect words. One of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain sums this up perfectly: “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”
2. If you could choose any other profession what would it be?
I would {try to} be a stand up comedian and/or comedy writer. I love to entertain people and it’s always incredibly satisfying to make someone laugh. Really great comedians fascinate me because they’re fearless and make comedy seem effortless when in reality, they’ve managed to find a common thread among a crowd of complete strangers and be relatable.
3. What do you do in your free time?
Happy hour every hour! Just kidding. If it’s a beautiful day out, it’s almost certain you’ll find me at one of the Greenbelts around Austin. I’m also a huge Texas Country fan, so if there’s a show going on somewhere relaxed like the Saxon Pub, I’m there!
4. Favorite margarita in Austin?
I have to go with the Avocado Margarita at Curra’s on Oltorf. I’m fairly positive I have an intolerance to avocados but will gladly sacrifice an upset stomach in the name of such a high degree of deliciousness.
5. If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would it be?
I almost want to say no one since my history of meeting people I really admire is marred by either foot in mouth syndrome or me not being able to form words, which as it were, are necessary for conversation. But if we’re assuming I could hold it together for said meeting, I would love to meet Tom Hanks. That man had me at, “But you ain’t got no legs, Lieutenant Dan.”
