2014 Olympic Recap

My thoughts about this year's Winter Olympics. They are not in order.


  • The USA/Russia game. That was such a crazy game to watch. I had gone with a friend (Hi Matt!) to the bar at the Panther's practice rink to watch the game - as I knew they would be playing the game, and serving booze at the 7:30am start time. The whole bar got really into the game. The other people watching the game started off as strangers, and by the end of the game they were new friends.  (Hi Mundo! Hi Steve!) We went out for celebratory drinks after.
  • Oshie. Just because he deserves his own bullet point. Clutch hockey player, class act, and adorable. LOVE HIM.
  • Disappointed that Team USA didn't medal. And kind of pissed, too.
  • I really enjoyed the larger sized rink. It really enables players to "do their thing." Less boards, more hockey. I could see the NHL eventually adopting the larger rink size.

I love the Winter Olympics. I can't wait for 2018. But South Korea?!?!

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
