Coffee. Career. Culture. California. Cubs.
Inspiring creative professionals and coffee drinkers from coast to coast.
Alex Gnibus is a 22-year-old PR professional and graduate student. Caffeinated Californian takes its name from Alex’s caffeine addiction and beach origins. Born and raised in San Diego, but currently living in Chicago, Alex will always be a West Coast girl with a streak of Midwest.
Alex has been working in fashion, beauty and lifestyle PR since age 19, when she interned for San Diego-based online fashion retailer Note To You Little Sister (NTYLS). Since then, she has been a part of industry-leading PR teams at Ulta Beauty and Ketchum PR, working with national brands like Urban Decay, Benefit, Whirlpool, Maytag, and many others.
As a self-proclaimed workaholic, Alex usually spends her free time obsessing over everything related to getting better at what she does. When she isn’t devouring issues of every magazine imaginable or researching trends, Alex enjoys Bachelorette nights with her roommates, Zumba classes that make her forget she’s working out, rooftop bars, concerts, and whacking away on her vintage Remington typewriter. And of course, grabbing a coffee or two. Or three or six.
