What led you to a job at Zipline Interactive?
I've always enjoyed working on complex problems, and I find that the solution is far more rewarding at the end, the harder I have to work at it. Zipline has always offered a wide variety of rewarding problems, and I'm always interested in a challenge! The team is great, and always willing to help each other to meet our goals.

What is your favorite part of working in digital advertising?
The variety of work is great. There is so much to know about so many companies and how they work, there's not a day that goes by that I don't learn something new.
Outside of digital advertising, what is your dream job?
Programming has always been a passion of mine since I was young. So I am rather content doing what I do every day.

The variety of work and learning opportunities.
What do you do when you're not at work?
Spend time with my wife and daughter, renovate my home, work on my cars, build computers, work on personal programming projects, fish, backpack, camp, skateboard, and learn.
What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
Rode a simple, single speed bike from Deer Park to downtown Spokane in one day following nothing but winding back roads. There was no mobile Google Maps back then, just gut instincts.
What is something most people don't know about you?
I was born in Chicago and moved to Spokane when I was 5 years old; I have loved being here ever since. Most of my family is still back in Chicago, or in the Tri-Cities area.
What is your favorite TV show or movie?
My wife and I have been The Walking Dead fans from the beginning. I don't really enjoy watching TV, but this is the one show I try to go out of my way for.
