Member of the Month: Jeremiah Fehrle, Battle Bridge Labs

Happy fall, fam! It’s that time again—no, not pumpkin spice season—Member of the Month! For October, we chose our super rad member Jeremiah Fehrle. He’s the account manager for Battle Bridge Labs, a tulsa-based digital advertising agency. We asked Jeremiah a couple questions so you could get to know him better. He loves a good Friday afternoon beverage on draft and you will NEVER guess what his go-to guilty pleasure song is. Read on to find out!

What do you do at Battle Bridge Labs and in what circumstance would I come to you for something?

I am an Advertising Account Manager for Battle Bridge. I manage projects for designated accounts, and do all digital media buying and strategy for my clients. Come to me if you are interested in launching ads for your business on platforms like Google, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.

What could you give a 30-minute presentation about with no advance preparation?

Facebook ad strategy and best practices!

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?

Speaking slower and being more intentional about my words, in general. I have a habit of thinking with my mouth.

Where are you in birth order (oldest? middle? youngest? Only child?) and do you think it affects your personality?

I am the oldest of my two siblings and definitely felt like it has a significant impact on my personality. It has made me very independent for better or for worse, but I also feel like it’s given me a secret passion for teaching. I enjoy learning new things and sharing that knowledge with others.

If you could only eat one item for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

St. Louis-style ribs. As long as I could switch up which pit I got them from.

What’s one song or artist that you’re embarrassed to admit you like?

“Cry me a river” by Justin Timberlake. Anytime I wake up in the morning to rain, it has to be the first song I listen to…

What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?

That would have to be Ben’s friendly face and the Quarantine Kolsch from the SMEGERATOR beer dispenser.
