Staff Spotlight on the Apple King, IT Director Craig

Q: Tell us a little about who you are…
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?
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?
Explosions… yeah

Q:  What is your favorite Steve Spangler Science moment?
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?
You would so totally wish you worked here!!!

Q: Why Mac over PC in our office?
Have you seen Windows??? ’nuff said.

Q: What do you like to do when not on the job?
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?
: 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?
Angry Birds. That is all.
