Team Spotlight

What is your favorite part about being a Research Assistant at KS&R?
My favorite part of being a Research Assistant at KS&R is the variety of projects I work on. Every project has its own challenges and requires thinking outside the box to deliver the best insights and solutions for our client's questions.

Do you use any social media apps to follow gamers? If so, which ones and who do you follow and why?
I follow a few streamers on Facebook and subscribe to their content on YouTube. For Fortnite, I like watching KingSlayer destroy people at a high level of the game, and for Magic the Gathering, I follow Nizzahon Magic for draft strategy and card reviews, and then CovertGoBlue (CGB) for cool combo ideas and card parings.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
I'm not sure exactly of the place, but I've heard the Pacific Northwest is my ideal climate. Data shows that it doesn't get too cold in the winter nor too hot in the summer. Seems like you could spend all year outside.

What is your favorite game or sport to watch and play?
My favorite sport to watch is football. Unfortunately being a Detroit Lions fan doesn't afford me many opportunities to celebrate, like fans of other teams. The silver lining is that I'm never heartbroken during the postseason and get to enjoy watching the games.

If money was no object, what would you do all day?
If I never had to worry about money, I would golf all day. I love the sport, but it is too expensive for me to play as much as I'd like. So I wouldn't feel like a bum, I'd tell people that I was chasing my dream of joining the PGA. With that much time playing, who knows, maybe I could.

If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?
That's easy, teleportation. Instantly being able to go anywhere and not waste time or money on travel would be amazing. Imagine playing a round of golf at Augusta in the morning, hiking the Rockies in the afternoon, and being back in Syracuse in time for dinner. That would be one heck of a Saturday.

What shows are you into?
Way too many! The Mandalorian, Peaky Blinders, It's Always Sunny, The Boys. I have access to almost all the streaming services, so there isn't much that I haven't tried to get into. The newest show I started watching is Wanda Vision. The first two episodes were released last week on Disney+ and I'm planning to start my weekend by watching it.
