Team Spotlight

What is your favorite part about being a Data Analyst at KS&R?
My favorite part is that no two projects are ever the same. I am constantly kept on my toes, which really helps keep me engaged and interested in my job.

What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?
I'm really into backpacking, so it would be pretty cool to take a summer to go on some epic backpacking adventures. There is so much to see out west that it would be fun to take a long road trip to drive around to different backpacking spots.

If you had unlimited funds to build a house that you would live in for the rest of your life, what would the finished house be like?
Honestly my dream house would be a custom-built apartment over a 4-car garage. While I don't have a large car collection, I do have a lot of gear. I really like the idea of small living spaces, but storage for gear is super important. It would be really nice to not have a bike stored in my kitchen because I'm just out of room everywhere else.

What is your pet peeve?
People that have their phones out at dinner. I think meals are a great time to enjoy someone's company and it's O.K. to set your phone down for an hour and actually engage in a conversation with someone.

What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
A lot of craft beer and fancy cheeses. Any time I go out of town I always try and seek out the local beers in the area. I seem to collect more than I drink, so my fridge has a pretty impressive collection.

How do you make yourself sleep when you can't seem to get to sleep?
My go-to is a podcast. Sometimes just listening to someone else talk for a bit is enough of a distraction to get your mind off whatever you are thinking about so you can sleep.

What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?
Roasted Brussels sprouts with over-easy eggs on top. I think it's a pretty hearty breakfast but some people think sprouts for breakfast is a bit much.

What's something common from your childhood that will seem strange to future generations?
VCRs. I guess future generations will never know the importance of rewinding a tape before returning it to the video rental store.
