What excites you about being part of the Cherre family?
Working with smart, driven, and humble individuals. When people talk about culture, Cherre has it.
At Cherre, we are all snow leopards – what are you working on, and what makes you unique?
One of the things I really like about working at Cherre is the exposure to so many different parts of the tech stack. Right now I’m on a small team that’s focused on designing and building a feature to support one of our users. It’s more exciting than it sounds and many of our users have been asking for similar functionality for a while.
I don’t know how unique this makes me, but I question pretty much everything. I suspect it’s annoying at times but I really try to think things through – more so thinking what can go wrong rather than what can go right.
How do you give back to the community to change our world for the better?
Those donations at the register get me every time! I’ve participated in different events over the years to help raise money for various causes. I don’t have one that I’m tied to – just happy to get involved occasionally.
What keeps you curious and engaged to grow personally/professionally?
One of my favorite quotes is some form of “chance favors the prepared mind”. There are so many opportunities, and with information so freely available, there’s really no excuse to not be growing. I also got into this field later in my career so I do feel the need to catch up at times.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I like being active, although I guess I’m not too adventurous. So it’s usually the gym in the morning and a walk in the evening if it’s nice outside. I have a lot of family and friends close by so spending time with them is always nice.
What is the last book you read/movie you watched?
I’m currently reading Deep Work by Cal Newport.
If your life was being turned into a movie, who would play you or narrate your story?
Hmm, maybe Rob Corddry. I think some friends would get a kick out of that.
