A Day in the Life: Q+A with Jamie Wells

Hi, I’m Jamie, the latest addition to the Portfolio Creative family! I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelors in Psychology so I’m captivated with learning about the human connection and how we interact with each other. I’m also a creative with a deep appreciation of good design and a penchant for live music.

I love that I get to call German Village my home. The charming shops and restaurants scattered amongst the historic brick houses has always felt a little bit magical to me. Plus, spending the day getting lost in the Book Loft is always a good day.


Admittedly, I am not a morning person (I’ve tried- it’s just not going to happen), so my mornings are no-frills. My routine is always accompanied by a podcast: NPR’s Hidden Brain, The Daily from the New York Times, This American Life, and Note to Self are in heavy rotation. To celebrate leaving on time, I reward myself with a venti cold brew from Starbucks. That’s when I really come alive!



During the week, my afternoons are spent helping companies connect with the top creative talent this beautiful city has to offer, but on the weekends I like spending my time catching up with friends and family, hosting get-togethers, trying out a new brunch spot, or getting out in nature.


For an evening spent at home, I enjoy working in my flower garden, cooking dinner, or catching up on whatever HBO show I’m obsessed with. If I’m out and about, you can find me at the latest rooftop bar trying a craft cocktail (who doesn’t love a rooftop view?), enjoying a concert with friends, or sampling food from whichever new restaurant has recently opened.
