There’s a new SummerHouse “temp worker” (for lack of a better term!) that y’all need to meet! While I (Laurel) am gone on maternity leave for the next eight or so weeks, Lisa’s middle son Max is taking over! I could not be more confident in his capabilities of keeping the social media machine running while I’m away, since he’s in the business of all things social himself! You’ll learn more about that in just a sec! 😉
To get to know him a little better, we conducted a little interview, as we do with all the newbies! So here you go…
1. Tell us a little about your background in social media (and about your awesome business, Magnolia Marketing!)
SOOO, I got my bachelors degree in Advertising from the University of Southern Mississippi back in May of 2013. One week later, I packed my bags and moved up to the great city of Nashville, TN. Since moving here I feel like I have worked a billion jobs, but just recently found something that I actually really enjoy doing! I started my own business in August called Magnolia Media Co. It is a Social Media Marketing company. We currently have a small group of clients but it is a whole lot of fun!
2. In 5 words or less, what has it been like to grow up as L. Palmer’s son?
Pretty fun and very lively!
3. What’s your favorite social media platform?
Hmmmmmmm. I think Instagram! It is so cool, and everyone loves good looking pictures!
4. Tell us a little bit about your love of music… Are you still in a band? If so, we need details!
Let’s see. I grew up in one of the most musical households in all of Mississippi, i feel like. I have such a love for music, and playing it. I have been playing drums for about 10 years now, but most recently picked up the guitar and started playing in a band of my own, called The Morning Low. In this band i sing and play guitar. It is so much fun!
5. What’s your favorite thing about spending time up here at SummerHouse so far?!
My favorite thing about Summerhouse is that its not some old company with a bunch of old ladies walking around trying to sell furniture. The music that’s played is great and the environment is so relaxing!
6. What’s the best trip you’ve been on lately?
Probably when I went with a friend of mine to St. Louis, MO to see one of my favorite bands, Brand New. It was an incredible concert and I had been wanting to see this band since I was in high school
7. What else do we need to know about you?!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE working out. I used to be a pretty lazy guy with bad eating habits and one day I said to myself “It’s time for a change.” I got off my butt and starting going to the gym. Meanwhile I fell in love with running and being healthy. In the past year, I have lost over 50 pounds and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon!

Awesome, Max! Thanks a ton! So excited to have you on board for a couple of months! 🙂
