Alexis has written tweets for million-book bestsellers and NBA All-Star champions. (She doesn’t kiss and tell, but ApricotServices.com does!) Through her work with Apricot Services, Lex wears the hat of digital strategist, project manager, and content creator. She presently lives in Scotland pursuing her M.Litt in Theology and the Arts at the University of St. Andrews.
…That’s what I tell people professionally. What I’ll tell you this this:
I’m an overly-passionate bookworm who loves a good conversation over steaming cups of tea. Theology of desire, the purpose of suffering, the disappointment of Persuasion adaptations, humanity’s need of art, the execution of a proper hashtag strategy—I can sink hours into these topics, but I’m also on board with listening to what get you fired up as well.
I’m a marketer in the Christian publishing industry. I develop content, consult on strategy, and coach authors alongside Apricot Services, a digital marketing start up. We believe truth-tellers need to be championed and set apart in today’s noisy world and I work tirelessly toward this end. I love my job.
I’m a master’s student at the University of St. Andrews where I am researching how a theology of hospitality applies to digital spaces and the creatives who use them to share their work. When I’m not curled up with this week’s reading and a mug of tea, I’m usually walking alongside the North Sea or in a cafe discussing St. Augustine or charcuterie with one of my coursemates.
I’m the host of The Bad Book Reviews Podcast, where I get to discuss not only the hilariously cruel reviews authors receive, but also unpack what it means to talk about books we don’t enjoy and accept criticism from the readers we seek to serve.
When I’m not working on professional or writing projects, I’m either reading, planning my next international trip, or trying to gather friends around my table for a meal.
