Video Transcript:

Hi I'm Brianna Kelly and this is my look Behind the Lens.

This is my family. I absolutely love this photo, not only because we are at a Packers game and we love to go to Packers games together. This one specifically. We went to London 2022 when they played at the Tottenham-Hotspur Stadium. And we made a whole vacation out of it. We were in Ireland, in London and I loved every minute of it. And my favorite vacation I've ever been on.

So, this is part of a series of photos I call "Brianna points at historic landmarks." This is obviously the Arch in St Louis. I have photos of me pointing at Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, all sorts of strange things. I just really love to take photos of myself in places and I never know what to do. So somehow this became my trademark, says me.

This is a behind-the-scenes photo of a State of the City event that we ran. Obviously during the pandemic. A lot of times when live events happen, I do graphics, run graphics. And that's what I'm doing in this photo. I just love it because the lighting was all blue and my hair was blue and it was just really a whole vibe.

This photo is Ryan and I in Indianapolis together. We were at a conference and we got the opportunity to go on to Indianapolis Motor Speedway where you get to be on the track. Go around the track. Not quite as fast as they do, you know, in real life, but it was still pretty cool.

I am part of an organization called the American Advertising Federation, Akron chapter. And this is my Executive Director. We are at the American Advertising Awards together at the Akron Civic. I absolutely love this organization. It lets me meet a lot of people in our industry and make new friends. And Cecilia is a huge part of that and I could not do it without her. And She looks amazing in every wig she's ever worn.

This is my cat. His name is Percy. He is very handsome, obviously. He has moved to two different states with me. He's lived in four houses. He's a trooper. He is my favorite little Snuggle Buddy. And even people who hate cats tell me that they like Percy, which I take great pride in.

This was one of the coolest events I ever got to work with PEG. We were part of the NFL draft a couple years ago. Akron is one of the Original Towns. We ran the event and then I was the one who got to have this red phone, it was like a bat phone. And I was the one to answer the call and write down the draft picks on the card that you see like the people reading from on the podium. So it was just so much fun. Really once in a lifetime. Never thought I'd get to like participate in an NFL draft and it was really a special day.

Our PEG and extended family volleyball team. We have played together for approximately six or seven years and while I can't say we've gotten a ton better, we've, you know, the championship is still elusive, We have so much fun and I love playing with these guys every week. Sand and indoor. And someday we're gonna take home, I won't say a trophy, but a really cool t-shirt. And make all our parents very proud.

Thank you for coming with me on this photo journey and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. See you soon.
