What do you do at Logical? (What are your responsibilities, day to day, types of accounts, etc)

What Logical value resonates most with you and why (Uplift, Commit, Teach, Be, Test, Communicate)
“Commit” – I’m a firm believer of “the more you put into it, the more you get out of it,” so I really identify with finding a passion in your work in order to put everything you can behind it. Talent can get you some wins, but hard work gets you championships.
Where is your hometown?
What are you most proud of accomplishing in your time here?
I’m proud of the sheer amount of growth that I’ve had in the past 1.5 years not only from a technical perspective, but as a person as well. Logical provides a lot of opportunity to host your own individual responsibilities all while having a very team based environment to help when it’s needed. Because of that, this has been the ultimate work atmosphere for me and has led to the incredible growth that I look back on with great fondness.
Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and how many?

What can you be found doing outside of work hours?
Trying my best to be a serviceable golfer in the summer and a gnarly ski bum in the winter.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I’ve actually become pretty proficient in playing the Ukulele. My sister had received one for her birthday a while back and I took to it right away. I always wanted to learn to play an instrument ever since those middle school piano lessons escaped my brain, so this was the next best opportunity.
