When did you start at VeriShip? 

October 3, 2018

What are the three things that make you want to come and work for VeriShip every day? 

  1. There is a constant challenge and opportunity in my role to learn and be involved with many parts of the business.
  2. I am really stoked about the people and organization. Everybody is pretty positive with a focus on continual improvement. My previous jobs have been pretty bureaucratic, and it’s exciting to see constant progress here.
  3. This place is full of weirdos.

What is one movie you can recite line-for-line?

The Nightmare Before Christmas

If you could magically become fluent in any language, what would it be? 

Javascript, or Spanish if I have to talk to someone.

If you could live in any TV show world, which would you choose? 

The Tick

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? 

  1. Hunter S. Thompson
  2. Neil Gaiman
  3. Penn Gillette

What does your perfect sandwich have on it? 

Grilled ham and cheese with a tomato bisque

If you had to lose one of your senses, which would you choose? 


Say, the zombie apocalypse is coming… Who are three people you want on your team? 

Shaggy, Scooby and Velma… Their presence pretty much guarantees that the zombie apocalypse is just a couple of crooked real estate developers in rubber masks. My choice has saved us from the apocalypse and prevented a crime. You are welcome.

If you were a dog, what breed would you be? 


What’s your most used emoji? 

Are those still a thing?

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be?

I don’t know yet. I haven’t taken the time to travel yet.
