Meet the Member: Present and Presentable

meet the member - Kevin Baum

Hello! I’m Kevin Baum, a communications manager for a Chicago-based company. I recently rekindled my relationship with my creative side and launched a blog: Present and Presentable. I’m all about being present and presentable because the best things will happen for us when our mind is “in the moment” and we’re looking our best.

When did you start blogging and what inspired you to start your blog?
I started blogging about a month-and-a-half ago. I was on a retreat and met a few successful bloggers and thought, “hey, I can do this!” I’m excited to truly find my voice and see where this will take me.
What is your favorite blog post that you have written?
It’s hard to pick just one, but probably Present and Presentable | It’s More than a Blog – It’s a Lifestyle, because it helped me hone in on what I want the blog to evolve into.

What do you love about blogging?
In one word, “flow.” I can sit down and write and the next thing I know an hour has passed (like finding a rhythm in a track workout or long run, or playing the guitar).
What are some brands that you have worked with, or some brands that you would love to work with?
I haven’t worked with any brands yet but I’m into men’s fashion and lifestyle, fitness, and I’m very much invested in personal accountability and growth. I also recently found that I love taking photos. I’ve written on-and-off my whole life, but I’m new to photography and have been finding my “voice” on Instagram, too!
