Solving crimes and InDesign

Let’s start by getting to know you a little better. Tell us about yourself.

My name is Madi Marin. I am an Air Force brat who moved 14 times before graduating high school, so I grew up driving from place to place in a Suburban with my three siblings. I went to Abilene Christian University and graduated in 2018. I have a 15-month-old goldendoodle named “Macy” AKA “Mason Derulo”. I got married two weeks before COVID-19 and went from our honeymoon straight into quarantine.

What’s something you love to do?

I love running, working out and reading. I also love listening to true crime podcasts and murder mysteries.

What’s your favorite place?

My bed or London.

What do you love about the job?

I love how every project is so different and involves solving problems. One day you are photoshopping food out of someone’s teeth and the next you are thinking about how someone will use a website. There is so much variety. What’s not to love?

What is the last thing you binge-watched?


What’s your favorite book?

Great Expectations.

If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?

That 70s Show. I don’t really watch sitcoms that often, so I just picked the one I like best.

Are you a listener or a talker?


If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Dark Chocolate (dairy-free). As long as it’s dairy free and dark chocolate, I’ll eat it. 

If there weren’t any more computers, what would be your new occupation?

I would be some kind of royalty, probably a queen. Or maybe an author or detective.

What’s the scariest thing you’ve done for fun?

Cheerleading (being a flyer in particular).

What’s your favorite children’s story?

Balto or Harry Potter.

If you had an extra hour of free time every day, what would you spend it doing?

Painting, reading and dancing around my living room. I like using acrylic paints the best. Now that I think about it, I also enjoy reorganizing my closet too.

Any words of advice?

Happiness is a choice.

Why Schaefer?

I wanted to work somewhere that people enjoyed going to work and being together. Schaefer seems to have that. I wanted to work alongside and learn from talented people.
