Young Pros Spotlight
Chelsea Markus, Age 27
Associate Director of Program & Brand Research at A+E Networks
How has being an ARF YP member impacted your career?
Being an ARF YP has introduced me to so many like-minded people. I truly enjoy going to events to see familiar faces and meet new people. Hearing about their accomplishments, challenges and work life has helped me navigate my own path.
What is your favorite restaurant in the city?
I could eat at Hot Sichuan on 9th Ave in Chelsea every night of the week. I’m telling you their General Tso’s Chicken is the best in the city. But for fried rice, my all-time favorite is at Jun-Men which is also on 9th Ave in Chelsea!
What is your favorite show/program?
My favorite show has to be either Gilmore Girls or Friday Night Lights, but right now I’m on a food show kick. I am really enjoying Salt Fat Acid Heat which is fairly new on Netflix. You also can’t go wrong with The Great British Baking Show or Ugly Delicious.
What’s your dream job? (If money was no object, what would you do?)
My dream job is to own a small-town florist / bakery. It seems like such a romantic, dreamy job. I imagine the small town would be something out of Gilmore Girls, like Stars Hollow!
