What do you love about what you do?

I love the challenge and the variety. There’s a new issue to solve and a new way to accomplish any given task on a day-to-day basis. The web changes so rapidly that there’s always something new to learn.

What is the most challenging part of what you do?

Probably the troubleshooting. From figuring out how to add a brand new innovative feature to a site all the way to figuring out why something has suddenly stopped working properly.

What has been one of your most memorable projects?

In recent memory, it has to be the Warehouse District. We had pretty much the whole team involved in helping get the site launched. It was a good team effort.

Favourite ad campaign of all time?

I really love the Pepsi Halloween campaign from 2013. I more so love the fact it became more viral when a unofficial edit popped up by a Coke fan.

Pepsi Halloween Ad - Coke Edit

What is your favourite movie?

The Fifth Element. Cheesy 90’s sci-fi.

What is your favourite saying or expression?

“wat”

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Mostly more work… but besides that, gaming, streaming, interneting (yes, that’s a word!).

What are you most proud of?

Wayward! My in-development, retro, wilderness survival game that I’m creating.
