THOMAS SEMOW, MARKETING MANAGER
Bio: Originally from Oakland, CA, Thomas relocated to the Central Coast after college to pursue an active outdoors lifestyle. With a background as a working musician, his knowledge of California’s geography is accented as much by its hidden camping spots as its diverse music venues. Today, he embraces the concept of intentional living by taking each opportunity he can to experience new cultures and explore new landscapes.
Resumé: Thomas received his Bachelor’s in 2013 from the University of California Santa Barbara with a double major in Philosophy and Religious Studies. At UCSB he was also active in the Music Department, performing in the Jazz Ensemble and studying Classical Bass. Upon graduating, he formed a band with his classmates and spent a few years playing at venues, festivals and private events throughout California. His career in Digital Marketing stemmed from an interest in musical instrument retail. While managing the ecommerce system for a boutique guitar shop in Santa Barbara, he launched his own online instrument storefront specializing in vintage and niche instruments. In 2016, Thomas discovered Hofmann Architecture and began a Marketing internship as a copywriter. His enthusiasm for the company’s vision and insights into the development of Living Vehicle’s brand led him to the position of Marketing Manager.
HA: What’s your role with the company?
TS: As the Marketing Manager, I direct our contractors for web development, social media and multimedia content creation. I also organize marketing collaborations, events, and press. Aside from helping to develop our strategy and brand, my main objective is to ensure that our messaging is consistent throughout each marketing channel.
HA: What’s your favorite part of each work day?
TS: I feel extremely fortunate to work in a family environment and enjoy the thrill of building something with people I love to be around. My favorite part of each day is catching up with everyone in the morning before we get started.
HA: Where do you look for new ideas?
TS: I’m constantly striving to discover new sources of energy for my creative drive. Everything from whitewater kayaking to attempting to cook Indian food. I recently travelled to Japan and was blown away by the approach to design and business.
Words to live by: Every day’s a fishing day, not every day’s a catching day.
