Here at Glacier Media, our internal agency ecosystem is made up of 150+ folks.

It’s time for another edition of Team GMD Q&A! It’s kind of like Vogue’s 73 Questions. Instead, it’s in blog form and there are less than 10 questions – because you’re busy and we respect your time.

Meet the Team: Andrea Wenting Li

This week on Team GMD we speak to Andrea, one of our social media strategists. Originally from China, Andrea moved to New York City where she worked as a school teacher before heading West and joining the world of digital marketing, studying web development, web design, video production & digital marketing at BCIT.

In a short paragraph, tell us a little bit about your role at GMD. What do you do on a daily basis:

I’m a social media specialist at GMD, who creates organic social content and manages Facebook ad campaigns. I also spend some time supporting the National sales team in devising digital marketing strategies, preparing pitch decks and campaign reports.

Personal kryptonite:

Art museum special exhibitions.

Hidden talent:

Making friends with my neighbours’ cats.


There are so many: reading, travelling, taking care of my plants… I am very proud of the fact that I harvested fig fruits and had blooming succulents last summer.

What are you currently listening to?

Chill lo-fi mix.

Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Night owl.

What’s your go-to productivity trick?

Set a timer on my phone. It blocks distraction and improves productivity.

Favourite place you’ve lived (outside of Vancouver)?

If it’s outside of Vancouver, I will choose New York because I have many close friends there and lots of good memories. There is never a dull moment in the city. You can always find something new, existing and inspiring.

A cause you are passionate about:

Climate justice and environmental sustainability.

How do you like to start your day?

I like to start my day with a 10-15 minutes full-body stretch, which is a new habit I picked up during quarantine.

What is the last thing you watched/listened to/read that inspired you, and why?

Algorithms to Live By (by Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths). It’s funny that as machines become more human-like, I’m reading about how to think like computers. But it turns out that many decision-making problems in our everyday lives already have an optimal solution provided by computer scientists, which is fascinating.

Favourite Vancouver weekend spot:

Kitsilano, Spanish Banks, Deep Cove, somewhere near the sea.

One thing school taught you and one thing it didn’t:
School taught me discipline and perseverance, but it didn’t teach me how to slow down and enjoy my life as it is.
