Humans of Walrus: Alex Behles
Alex Behles joined Walrus as a copywriter in October 2015. A native of Winnetka, IL, Alex comes to New York via LA, where she previously worked at CP+B. Fact: the walrus is an extremely social animal. So Alex fits right in. Read on to learn more about Alex and follow her on Instagram @yalexbehles.
Walrus (W): Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know (e.g. a hidden talent, third nipple, etc.).
Alex Behles (AB): I can make Ukrainian eggs. If you don’t know what Ukrainian eggs are, well, you’re not alone.
W: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
AB: Advice columnist Ann Landers. She was witty, candid, and knew how to tell a man the baby wasn’t his.
W: Everyone has a spirit animal. What’s yours, and why?
AB: Snuggle the Downy Bear embodies everything I hold dear.
W: What’s the best part about your job at Walrus?
AB: Work is fun. Fun is work. And Frances plays Blackstreet on the speakers A LOT.
W: If you could switch jobs with anyone at the agency, whose job would you want?
AB: Isn’t this the plot of a Jason Bateman movie? And doesn’t that movie end with someone being murdered? Nice try.
W: What has been your favorite project at Walrus so far?
AB: A series of satirical political pins for New York Times. It doesn’t get better than that.
W: Besides working at Walrus, what is your proudest accomplishment?
AB: This professional photo. I’d like to thank my parents for not getting me braces, and my hairdresser for partying.
