This Spot Welders editor can’t live without YouTube ‘how to’ videos and has a naughty love for a popular powdered cheese based favourite
Erin Nordstrom is part of a rare breed in advertising - she knew she always wanted to work in the business. Specifically, it was her dream to work as a film editor, which she does now at Spot Welders in Los Angeles. As an editor she's cut spots for brands such as Samsung, Chevrolet, NHL and Ford, and has worked on music videos for the likes of Chris Cornell, Damien Rice, Jennifer Hudson, and Avril Lavigne.
What keeps this Indianan in LA ticking outside of work though? Her Essential List would suggest a heady mix of Californian sun, pilates and whiskey would just about do the trick.
