Q: What career path did you choose for yourself as a child?

Q: What's your favorite TV show?

A: Definitely The Office!

Q: Where is your favorite vacation spot?

Q: Share one thing you want people to remember most about you.

A: My last name is pronounced “goats,” like the animal… but spelled different.

Q: What do you love best about your job?

A: I would have to say its the people. Everybody here is so open and nice, which makes it a wonderful place to work. I also love being able to work with the popular JavaScript frameworks.

Q: What has been your best experience at TG so far?

A: There have been quite a few, but nothing beats my first day. This is my first post-college job, and I also moved into my first apartment the same day.

Q: What technologies have you worked with or enjoyed working with?

A: I have enjoyed working with all the web technologies I have picked up since starting here. My most favorite have been React, Node, and GraphQL.
