Meet the Men Behind the Ladies of Soda Pop PR

Being in a relationship with a PR girl isn’t always easy – there’s never a dull moment.  This blog post goes out to the men who make us laugh, listen even when we use PR jargon and accept our social media addictions. With no further adieu, we present to you, the men behind the ladies of Soda Pop PR.

dyanbyrne

Name: Byrne Offutt

Husband of: The Boss Lady aka Dyan Dolfi-Offutt

Hometown: Hot Springs, Arkansas

College: The University of Arkansas…Woo Pig Sooie

Profession: Director of Sales and Marketing for Mountain Valley Water Los Angeles. I’ve also been a professional actor for the last 24 years.

What is a big risk you are happy you took?

I would have to say my move to Los Angeles. It was quite a culture shock but I met the love of my life here so hell yes.

To win a talent show you would…

Sing “I Remember You” by Skid Row.

What TV show character do you most relate to?

Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead. In the face of seemingly insurmountable odds he presses on. It’s a good allegory for life. Of course so is, “Stay away from Zombies.”

What is your movie theatre candy of choice?

Popcorn. I realize it’s not technically a candy but I cannot express to you the depth of my love for this stuff. I will not watch a movie without it. I don’t care if I’ve had a five course meal preceding it, I will have popcorn at the movies.

When you are not at work, you can be found….

Training for my next marathon or singing in my band, Maiden-LA (an Iron Maiden Tribute)

What is your signature drink?

My drink of choice at present is Blanton’s Bourbon over one cube of ice, preferably with a nice cigar.

If you could attend the concert of any musician (dead or alive) who would it be?

The Moscow Music Peace Festival in 1989.

Tell us one thing that would surprise us about your significant other.

She’s surprisingly goofy. Lots of comedy in our house.

Moving to LA to work in the entertainment industry having not ever been to California before – so far so good

To win a talent show you would…

Play the guitar

What TV show character do you most relate to?

Well I love Dexter but not really into the whole serial killing thing, so probably E from Entourage or Jim from the office

What is your movie theater candy of choice?

Twizzlers, no wait peanut M&M’s no actually Twizzler’s, how about chocolate covered peanut Twizzlers…do they have those yet??

On the golf course.

erinjohn

Name: John Bailey

Husband of: Erin Bailey

Hometown: Agoura Hills, CA

College: Oregon State University

Profession: Electrical Engineer

What is a big risk you’re happy you took?

I’m pretty young so I haven’t had to take too many risks, so as of now I would have to say moving to Oregon to get my bachelor’s. The only people I knew there were Erin (gf at the time) and my good friend Joey who also went to Oregon State. I had also never lived outside of the state of California up to that point of my life. Turned out to be a great decision.

To win a talent show you would…

Build a robot.

What TV show character do you most relate to?

Tough, I’d say Walter White from Breaking Bad but my meth cooking isn’t that great. I guess Louis CK (from Louis) or Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm) I just love their cynical outlooks; quite funny.

What is your movie theatre candy of choice?

Not a huge fan of sweets, I usually get popcorn.

When you’re not at work, you can be found..

Walking our dog Jax, changing diapers, or watching the Lakers, Raiders or Dodgers depending on the season.

What is your signature drink?

Ninkasi Tricerahops (dbl IPA) or Johnny Walker

Led Zeppelin

She’s an incredible snowboarder, better than any of our friends.
