What is your Backblaze Title?
Junior Technical Support Representative
Where are you originally from?
San Francisco Bay Area

What the tech industry is like.
Where else have you worked?
The Chairman! Best bao ever.

College of San Mateo.
What’s your dream job?
Being a chef has always interested me. It’s so interesting that we’ve turned food into an art.
Favorite place you’ve traveled?
Japan. Holy crap Japan is cool. Everyone is so polite and the place is so clean. You haven’t had ramen like they serve, I literally couldn’t stop smiling after my first bite. The moment we arrived, I said, “I already miss Japan.”
As much as I like video games, cooking is my favorite. Everyone eats, and it’s a good feeling to make food that people like. Currently trying to figure out how to make brussel sprouts taste better than brussel sprouts.
Of what achievement are you most proud?
Meeting my girlfriend. My life turned around when I met her. She’s taught me a lot of things.

Good ol’ Cola. I quit drinking soda, though.
As much as I love eating healthy, there’s nothing like spam.
Why do you like certain things?
Because certain things are either fun or delicious.
Anything else you’d like you’d like to tell us?
If you have any good recipes, I’ll probably cook it. Or try to.
You’re right Matt, certain things are either fun or delicious, like The Chairman’s bao! Welcome aboard!
