Tell us a little about your family.
I have two incredible parents, my mom (Anita) and dad (Kevin) who are both currently living in Bismarck, North Dakota and have been for the past 11 years. My mom is a retired piano teacher and now works full time as the secretary/account administrator for a few gas station branches in Bismarck. My dad is an associate pastor at GracePoint Church in Bismarck. I also have two wonderful brothers. Josh is 16 and a junior at Shiloh Christian School. My older brother Zach just turned 27 and is living in Nashville, Tennesee with his sweetheart wife, Sydney! He is an incredible musician, has his own studio and band called Empty Isles (look it up) and was recently signed to a record label called Tooth and Nail.
Do you have a childhood nickname you’d like to share?
According to my dad, I’ve been called “Sarbear” or “Bear” my whole life because I’m cute and cuddly…*eye roll* but my last name is the perfect last name to just say by itself apparently, so I am constantly called JUST “Lardy” ALL the time.
Do you have a favorite book and/or movie?
I am a movie fanatic so I love all types of movies! But I especially hold dear Lion King 1 1/2 and the original Star Wars Trilogy. I can also quote “The Princess Diaries” word for word…
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
So it’s between swooning over Jim Halpert while binge-watching The Office, predetermining the story plot of every Hallmark movie, (My prediction is always correct) and then getting overly competitive when playing Ultimate UNO.
Do you have any hobbies?
I sure do! Outside of my love for designing, I also love to sing and play my ukelele. I really enjoy painting, specifically with watercolor. Sports has always played a huge part in my life, so whenever I get the chance I like to get out my glove and play catch, or find a court and play some volleyball!
Tell us one random fact about you.
I have an eraser collection that started when I was 3 yrs old. I have over 700 of all shapes and sizes imaginable. And then another fun fact is that about 6 years ago I tried out for American Idol. Interesting experience to say the least! Yeah Ryan Seacrest!
What are three things left on your bucket list?
- Visit New York City during Christmas
- Hug a penguin
- Be the voice of a Disney Princess
What’s your favorite type of shark?
An Angelshark! Only because of the name not gonna lie.
Why are you excited to join AdShark Marketing?
I get the chance to work with a team that constantly chases after the same goals. It’s truly a group of individuals who persistently challenge each other, and have a BLAST doing it! I’m able to fully dive into my creativity and I’m allowed to be a risk-taker in order to give our clients the best designs possible!
