Meet Mike, our VP of Audience Development and Syndication. That fancy title means he helps establish Rue’s presence via social networking channels, like our blog. He has to be in-tune with our Members, and is ever-knowledgable about the biggest, of-the-moment social media trends. Check out the gifts he’s picked for those lucky enough to make his list.

For my team: “Nothing says, ‘Get some work done on the weekend!’ like an eye-catching laptop sleeve from Vera Bradley.”

For myself: “I will never forget watching with my late father when Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters. I’d love to experience the tournament in person.”

For my girlfriend: “She would really like diamond earrings, so I’m choosing these cozy and sweet pillows. Plus, what better inspiration for our Words With Friends games?”

For my children: “Teaching kids to be responsible with money is really important, and a piggy bank is a great conversation starter. Matthew and Charlie are identical twins, though, so I’ll need two.”

Meet Austin, our Studio Operations Coordinator. He’s the man behind the scenes of our incredible in-house studio, and he has a hand in everything from booking models to painting sets (ever so artfully). Check out the gifts he’s picked for those lucky enough to make his list.

For my mom: “She’s an illustrator/graphic designer, and spends a lot of her time sitting in front of her computer. This should definitely help her stay warm through the winter in her home office.”

For my younger brother: “He’s a senior in college, and he needs some more grown-up sweaters he can dress up with. This is a good start.”

For my roommates: “In our quest to be real adults in our mid-twenties, my roommates and I have been cooking a lot of meals that don’t involve the microwave. I’d say a real set of knives works better than my old, hand-me-down butter knives – plus, it’s a gift I can also use.”
