How long have you been with koi?
I’ve only been here for about 6 months so far, but I really love the environment and cul- ture here at koi! Everyone has been incredibly welcoming!
What does your job involve? What is a typical day for you?
I work as a Graphic Designer for the Marketing Team, and my main project so far has been the catalog – however, I’ve also been working on video banners for our site, helping with our recent video shoot, and jumping into social media. One of my favorite aspects of being a Graphic Designer is that I get to wear a lot of hats, and that my proj- ects change from day to day.
Favorite koi item?
I just purchased the Next Gen Good Vibe Joggers! I’m con- stantly shoving tools into my pockets when I work on art projects at home, so having a pant with a lot of large pockets that’s also comfortable and styl- ish made them a no-brainer!
Fun or interesting fact about yourself?
I was born in Canada, so I’m technically Canadian. Howev- er, I grew up and spent nearly my entire life in the US.
Outside of graphic design, I also create artwork in many different media – digital and traditional illustration,
some 3D modeling, painting, and sculpting. I was just accepted to participate in a few gallery group shows recently.
My wife and I brought home our cat, Maple, last January, and she’s a major part of the family! Since we’ve been working from home, she en- joys being a part of Zoom meetings and will often speak her mind during those meet- ings!
It’s really difficult to pick a favorite anything, but I think Robocop is as close to a per- fect movie as you’ll get! It’s definitely my go-to movie!
