How long have you been strategizing/analyzing/ producing straight fire at Net Conversion?
It’s been 2 years and 10 months!
Favorite moment at Net Conversion so far?
There are so many funny moments day to day but someone planned a Zumba event during COVID over Google Hangout and watching the team attempt Zumba had me laughing hysterically , particularly Ryan trying to Zumba was like watching a fish caught in a net.
Who do you admire most at Net Con that’s not on your team?
I admire all of the analysts. They are constantly at it and are relentless at solving problems for clients. Also, David , he juggles his family life and his work team well. He’s really smart, and a great people leader. A great person to learn from.
What are your go to pizza toppings?
Pepperoni, but I also loveeee a good supreme!
What is one completely useless thing that you can spend hours doing?
Playing with my cat… but it’s not useless for him, it makes him happy.
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
I’m definitely a night owl. I get a really large burst of energy around 8-9pm. I get super productive around that time.
What’s the best concert you’ve ever attended?
I love concerts, I am a concert junkie so that’s tough, I went to AJR the other day so it’s fresh in my mind. They have a true orchestra on stage. Trumpet, drums, guitar, pianist, etc with a great big jumbo screen & a lights show which was awesome. Also went to Drake many moons ago he came to UCF arena when he first started out, and my girlfriends and I pushed our way to the front row.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Totally random but a racecar driver.
Do your friends and family think you’re a good driver?
Yes! ……but…… I have acquired probably around 15-20 parking tickets while working at Net Conversion from the stupid metered spots outside the building.
What is the #1 thing you would recommend someone doing in Orlando?
Universal Studios! Harry Potter world is amazing. The architecture of it is amazing, and it reminds me of London, which is my home land. Also Pour Choice Tap house because it’s my fiance’s bar and it’s great for beer lovers.
You wake up and it is christmas morning what is the first thing you are going to do?
Watch my daughter open up the last day of the advent calendar, then watch everyone open presents. I love watching people open gifts.
What is your favorite takeout food?
Pig Floyd’s on Mills…. It’s a BBQ with a twist.
What is something you do every day that you wish you didn’t have to do?
Make my bed. If my bed is not made , it throws off my whole day.
What are some of the nicknames you call your pets?
My cat Sam, I call him SamoWamo and tiger because he’s like a mini tiger.
What is your favorite thing to spend money on?
Traveling! No dime can be wasted when spending it on discovering a new place. It’s invaluable!
