ADHD Director of Experiences and Brand Manager Alex Shebar
Alex Shebar experiences all that life has to offer like it’s his job, which, truthfully, it is. He is the new Director of Experiences at Culture Trip, one of the world’s leading travel, media and entertainment sites. Previously, he was also the first Brand Manager for Bumble and Director
of Community for Yelp. His goal is to try and make everyone’s travel experiences just a little more interesting so if you’re heading somewhere new, message him on Instagram at @AlexShebar or find him in person. He’s always up for a conversation on how to travel like a local. Today we talk about what it’s like to be a “breaking news journalist”, how it feels to be ADHD and always three steps ahead, how sharing is kind of our favorite thing, inspiration for The Hall Of Justice, how to list for success, and perhaps what to do after you get fired from your first job. Enjoy!
