Meet the Staff: Holly Minshull

holly-2Name: Holly Minshull (minshkins)

Position: Associate Product Manager

Originally from: Seattle, Washington

Worked at Sporcle since: November 2012

About:  After studying Middle English at Western Washington University, Holly moved back to Seattle and joined the team at Sporcle. When she’s not Sporcling, Holly works with special needs kids, spends time with her friends, and plays in a rec soccer league. When SporcleHQ cast employees as Disney characters, Holly was chosen to be Belle.

Interests: Holly’s an avid fan of Seattle sports. (We recommend not asking her about the Sonics or the most recent Super Bowl.) She likes Indie Rock music, but she’s known around the office for being an enthusiastic Sam Smith fan. Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones are two of her favorite series – both the books and on-screen. She also regularly attends Sporcle Live trivia nights.

Her favorite Sporcle quiz is Oldest to Youngest Minefield. But she holds a special place in her heart for quiz that introduced her to Sporcle–Countries of the World.

Strange Fact: When Holly was young, she had a large Tasmanian Devil collection. It included stuffed animals, an eraser, piggy bank, and other knick-knacks. She proudly shared them at her 3rd grade show-and-tell. 

Here at Sporcle: Holly is passionate about creating and promoting fun quizzes. She schedules content for the homepage, Facebook and other social media platforms. She works with our engineers to develop new products and improve the site. And she’s helping develop Sporcle’s newest quiz platform: Octoquiz.

Favorite thing(s) about working at Sporcle: Holly likes that every day is different at Sporcle. She likes the people and the community. And she loves the opportunity to be creative–whether coming up with a new product idea or creating a new quiz.
