There have been quite a few team interviews in the past few weeks, and we just keep going! Like the Energizer bunny…keep hiring.  And thus marks a completely full Resound office.

We digress.  Let us introduce you to Paul:  Our Web Dev Intern II.  Initially, we were looking for one dev intern,and we were especially impressed with two candidates.  We thought, “We shouldn’t have to choose.”

Welcome to the team, Paul!

Paul studied at Mesa Community College where he received his Associate’s Degree.  Then he transferred to ASU Polytechnic where he’s currently finishing up his Bachelor’s in Graphics Information Technology. Translation:  He’s studying Web Design and Photography/video.

He also writes fiction and is an amateur filmmaker/actor—a very dangerous combination.  This almost completely excuses the fact that his other hobby is binge-watching TV shows (for educational purposes, of course).  We have no such excuse.

Paul is very passionate about his work and the creative process.  He told us,

I think what I’m most excited about is that, at the end of each project, I have something that I can show my friends and family. Any kind of creative career is like this; it impacts more than just a customer. I don’t want to be just another cog in a big corporate machine, I want my work to impact people.

Your work is already impacting us, Paul, and we’re really excited to have you with us.  Ok, we’ll hand over the mic…  Here’s Paul:

Resound:  If you had a chip on your shoulder, what flavor would it be?

Paul:  Chocolate.

Resound:  What really makes you laugh?

Paul:  Puns about trees, but I’m thinking about branching out.

Resound:  What do you feel people take for granted the most?

Paul:  All sorts of things, but in my line of business, people seem to really take good web design for granted. Designers aren’t just born with their skill; it is something that has to be developed.

Resound:  Are you a morning songbird or night owl?

Paul:  A night owl. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve gone to bed before midnight.

Resound:  What’s your favorite item on the Chipotle menu?

Paul:  I don’t know. I haven’t eaten there in over a year.  (Resound here. We must remedy this immediately. You poor man.)  

Resound:  If your life were a film, what genre would it be?

Paul:  If I had it my way, it’d be Science Fiction, but as it stands, it would probably be a dramedy (dramatic comedy).

Resound:  What was your favorite toy as a kid?

Paul:  LEGO! I think our family spent enough on LEGO to put me through college…twice.

Resound:  Does it bother you that this list is only nine questions long?

Paul:  No, but it would bother me if it were 11 questions long.

Resound:  It’s improv time!  Name 10 things we’ll NEVER see sitting on your desk:

Paul:

  1. Me
  2. Anyone, really; I don’t like it when people sit on my desk
  3. A pile of garbage
  4. A list with everything checked off
  5. A framed picture of a potato
  6. A mirror
  7. A comb
  8. A pirate chest filled with cursed treasure
  9. A model of human teeth
  10. A list of 10 things you’ll NEVER see sitting on my desk
