Get to know the hilarious, hard-working, and creative individuals that make up the Creative Consulting family one blog at a time.
Hello again Summerville, and welcome back to the blog writer's desk! I am here to bring you yet another wonderful blog introducing you to another team member and family member of the Creative Consulting family! As October draws to a close, we are trying to enjoy every moment of fall that we can. Have you taken a walk up and down the main square of town? It's covered head to toe in some of the best and most creative Halloween decorations we've ever seen! Every shop has its own flair of All Hallows Eve, luring us in with the promise of delicious treats, candy, or just some spooky fun. While Halloween and all of our frightful fun might be a little different this year, there is still something magical about this time of year that nothing can get in the way of. One of the most magical things we love to see every day is how vibrant and alive Summerville seems to grow every day. More shops are bustling, restaurants are getting back to their normal business, and even a few new potential budding businesses might even begin popping up. It feels like fall has brought in a cool breeze of fresh air, and it's something we've all needed.
I continue to sit happily from my writer's desk watching the town of Summerville bustle around me, taking everything in. While I continue to research and dive deep into a myriad of topics for each of our clients to make each of my blogs better than the next, I love to look up and watch the town float by for a few minutes. It's refreshing, thank you, Summerville. One of my most favorite projects of this year has been these spotlight blogs. I say it every time I sit down to write one, that I love continuing to learn more about my teammates. Each interview and blog is more surprising than the next, and it opens my eyes to these incredible individuals sitting around me helping Creative Consulting grow one day at a time. Each of them truly put the heart and soul of creativity into our name, that's for sure!
For this blog's feature, we are spending time and interviewing one of the very first company members, Mr. Capers Lever. Capers was on the welcome wagon when I joined the team and has been an incredible support to me personally since day one. If you didn't know, my blogging work is closely connected to his work with SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Every important keyword and piece of information that is trending or relevant right now that lives within each of my blogs is key for the work he does every day. For the last year and a half, it has been a joy to work with him. I have also never met someone who loves Dunkin Donuts as much as him. If you're reading this Dunkin, I wanted to let you know that I work with one of your biggest fan's and he deserves at least one or two free treats this week. He is the definition of a professional, but he always knows when to make you laugh at the most perfectly timed moments. He also tends to keep you on your toes and surprise you with every little fact he shares about himself or what he's up to during our Monday meetings. Going through this interview was no exception to that - Capers continues to surprise me and make me laugh out loud. I hope you enjoy reading this blog and Capers' interview as much as I enjoyed writing it! It is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to Mr. Capers Lever!

What an incredible guy, am I right? I think one of the most surprising things to me that I will have to ask a few more follow up questions about, is about his time as a classical pianist. With my background in performance and music, that will be a very fun rabbit hole to go down. Also, I have never heard Charleston better described than how he answered his last question. The atmosphere here really is one of the best in the world, isn't it? What a great reminder of all the beauty that is right here around us and all within such a short distance! Again, many thanks to Capers for spending the time working with me on this blog, and helping me be better at my job every day! I hope you all enjoyed another visit with me and another of my teammates! Until next time Summerville, find the fun in the puzzles you come across in your life and stay caffeinated!
