PT056: Meet Taylor Coil, Tortuga's Marketing Manager
Power Trip Travel Podcast
Here at Tortuga, we've got leaders who are not afraid to hire strong women, and we're excited to introduce one of them to you now! She's smart, sassy, and rocks the red lip: meet Taylor Coil, the brilliant brain behind Tortuga's marketing. Taylor has been a remarkable addition to the team, working hard to bring back the Cootie Catcher with a game called "Travel Roulette" (check it out... DO IT). This gal knows her stuff, and we're willing to share her marketing philosophies for those of you who are interested in stealing her identity (or if you'd just like an inside look at what she does and how she does it). FUN FACT: she's done it all while traveling the world with Remote Year. Another exciting fact about Taylor: her veins run gold with Felix Felicis, so not only is she good fortune in human form, but she smells like everyone's favorite everything (to this Tortuganaut she smells like Christmas and cupcakes and puppies). She's awesome. We're pumped to show her off.

PT055: Meet Patrick Healy, Tortuga's Industrial Designer
Power Trip Travel Podcast
Several months ago, in search for an industrial designer, Fred and Jeremy put this ad out on the internet: "Where have all the good designers gone and where are all the gods? Where's the streetwise artist to fight the rising odds? Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed? Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need..." Okay, you caught us, that's a Bonnie Tyler song. She really said it best, though. The bottom line: we were wanting to improve our products and we needed a professional. We didn't want just anyone... we were holding out for a hero. Enter, Patrick Healy, Tortuga's very first in-house industrial designer: roguish, devil-may-care, rough around the edges but with stars in his eyes. Tune in for a glimpse of his story, how he joined Tortuga, his transition from being self-employed, and some tips for those interested in becoming industrial designers as well.
