Q & A
What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid?
An inventor or entrepreneur. I would always come up with new ideas – I really thought I was on to something with magnetized screwdrivers (it was already invented).
What do you do at Blox?
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
I recently finished the Wheel of Time book series. Over 4.4 million words spread across 14 books.
I realize that i’m technically not working on this right now, but i’m very proud of finally finishing the series and I wanted to share.
What do you like about working at Blox?
Everything! Blox is comprised of extremely friendly, empathetic and smart individuals. Everyone I have spoken with is driven and happy to be working here, it’s a fantastic environment.
What are the values that drive you?
Continuous Improvement, empathy.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
Being spontaneous and going on adventures. Music festivals, gymnastics, reading, sports, long walks on the beach, short walk to the refrigerator, etc. I love living life to the fullest!
Tell us something we don’t know?
A bolt of lightning contains enough energy to toast 100,000 slices of bread.
If you could sit for lunch with anyone on the planet (present/future/past), who would that be and why?
I would like to talk to George R. R. Martin a day before his passing to determine if he finished A Song of Ice and Fire or not. If he hasn’t I will go back in time and fix it because we deserve better than the last season HBO gave us.
