Q: Tell us a little about who you are…
A: I am many people: a husband, a son, an uncle, a friend, and “Daddy” to three delightful dogs. I am a local boy, homegrown in Denver. I love to find the interesting side of everything – rocks and stars & Beaker and cars. Science is just a part of who I am. I built Heathkit projects with my dad as a kid. The smell of sawdust and melting solder always brings back fond memories. All through school, science was my passion. I loved using the early TI-80, Atari, and Commodore 64 computers in school. Then one day I saw the first Macintosh (a Mac Plus) at an office and I knew something had changed in the world. I begged and borrowed to get one for myself and I have been hooked ever since.
Q: What do you do at Steve Spangler Science?
A: I am Colonel Panic, the System Profiler and IT Director. I roam the halls with my trusty sidekick, Fred the Crocheted Zombie, fighting technology bottlenecks wherever we find them.
Q: What do you like best about what you do?
A: Explosions… yeah
Q: What is your favorite Steve Spangler Science moment?
A: Zarah walking on eggs. Oh, and Danae in the windbag pyramid. And Steve as Dog The Bounty Hunter and… sorry… okay, everything is my favorite moment!!
Q: What is something you wish every SSS customer knew?
A: You would so totally wish you worked here!!!
Q: Why Mac over PC in our office?
A: Have you seen Windows??? ’nuff said.
Q: What do you like to do when not on the job?
A: I play guitar (Piedmont-style blues for those familiar with the genre). I fish and walk and camp and shoot. I eat black bean burgers and drink sweet iced tea outdoors on summer afternoons, voraciously consuming all the non-fiction I can get my hands on. (I do NOT, however, like Piña Coladas or getting caught in the rain.)
Q: What is your favorite science experiment?
A: Elephant’s Toothpaste. BIG Elephant’s Toothpaste. Oh, and anything that might cause loss of balance or hearing!
Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A: Angry Birds. That is all.
