#DREAMTEAM: Eldon Smith, Content & Community Manager
When you walk the theatre floorboards, the golden rule is to be organised; something that our content and community manager Eldon Smith knows all too well.
Garnering a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theatre from the Australian Institute of Music sent Eldon on a melodious path right into our music-loving arms.
She polished off her skill set with a Cert IV in Graphic Design and then headed out into the wide world, building experience with a number of well-loved brands like Maison Blanche and Fossil.
For Eldon content is King and it’s also customisable. There’s so many voices out there and Eldon’s talent lies in finding the right one for every brand. Couple that with her passion for the music and entertainment industry, and we’ve got ourselves a woman that is custom-made for the Jaden Digital lifestyle.
A character chameleon with creative flair and pinpoint precision, Eldon has managed to marry her love for music and content for the benefit of every project she touches.
Do you consider yourself to be a bit of a chef at home? Either way, what’s your best dish?
Yes! I love food, and I love to cook. Usually with a glass of wine in my hand. My go to recipe (and favourite meal of all time) is chorizo carbonara, can’t get enough of it.
You’ve been given return flights to anywhere in the world – where do you go and why?
London, for fashion, food and theatre.
What would your autobiography be called?
What app could you not live without? (excluding the usual Facebook etc apps)
One of my fifteen photo editing apps…
Which superhero would you want to be?
Are the power puff girls superheroes? I’m going to say yes, I’d be Blossom for sure.
What would your dream day be if money was no issue?
Let’s kick it off with a morning at the spa, followed by brunch (bottomless). I’d definitely go shopping, and have dinner somewhere deluxe. Finished off with a night at the theatre, and cocktails with a view.
What’s the last song you busted out a groove alone to?
It was either Cardi B or One Direction (there is no in between)
What’s the most ridiculous thing you have bought?
My very aesthetic bike which I’ve ridden about three times.
What is your strangest obsession?
Stationary, I am obsessed with nice pens and new notebooks.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?
Finding the kitschiest brunch spot and getting the perfect gram, I’d win gold.
What TV channel doesn’t exist but should?
A Broadway themed channel with never ending musicals, I would binge watch that all day.
RnB Fridays – yes or no?
Yes. Every day is RnB Friday.
Would you rather be always 10 minutes late or 20 minutes early?
Twenty minutes early, but then I’d anxiously walk around the block twenty times.
What was your first live music concert you attended?
It was Jason Derulo and I had a great time. Don’t judge me.
What gets you up in the morning?
A solid workout with a very strong coffee as the light at the end of the tunnel.
