Let’s get to know Orion…
What’s your guilty pleasure? Scouring through the depths of SoundCloud trying to find the next big hit. I’ve been known to make a good playlist.

What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day? Turn on some anime and make sure my Oreos and milk are by my side.
What led you to this career/industry? I wanted to be in business, but finance was too much math. I interned at TMA for about a month during my junior year of college and realized that marketing is definitely the place for me. After college, I was a part of the Gateway to Greatness program, working in the Dallas office. When the program ended, I was hired onto the Entertainment team full-time and moved out to LA to work at Hideaway.

What’s a trip that changed you and why? My first trip to LA earlier this year. Spending a week exploring and getting to know the city made me realize this is the place for me and that I could see myself actually living and working out here. Being born and raised in Dallas, this was a big move. But, I can say I definitely made the right choice.
