Part 9? Really? This is getting a little out of control. But, as long as there are talented people to profile (and as long as your ravenous appetite for clever quips and ridiculous links remains insatiable), the beat goes on.
Dylan Smith. Interactive. @dylansm. PDX.
Our mothers taught us that if we didn’t have something nice to say about someone, we shouldn’t say anything at all. Dylan… well… uhmmm… Dylan is… uh… hmmm… Aw, c’mon, Dylan! You know it’s not true. We have lots of nice things to say about you. We just can’t really say them right now. Not while the HR folks are looking over our shoulders. Are we serious? Actually, yes. Very serious.
Andy Smith. Lots of Things. LA.
A California native, Andy is a vintage car aficionado who dreams of one day buying a classic muscle car and heading for a weekend in Vegas. You know, just like those one dudes. Andy enjoys cooking (while his wife fixes the leaky faucet!), movies and anything written by James Ellroy. But lately, he’s been tackling the works of Dr. Seuss with his kids, Ben and Josie.
Leslie Roberts. Producer. SLC.
What does Leslie love? Plants. Flowers. Dancing during staff meetings. Adventures. Christmas presents. Fishing. Fresh air. Songs. Poems. Books. Paintings. Small animals. Large animals. Bright copper kettles. Warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages all tied up with string. Who does Leslie love? You. F’reals. She loves you.
Jonathan Minori. Interactive. @minoflow. SLC.
One day, Jonathan Minori will direct a music video. Hopefully, it’s something like THIS and not something like THIS. Although, if it were something like THIS blended with something like THIS, my head would probably explode from sheer awesomeness. In the meantime, Jon lives on powder, owns BKnowlden in triathlons and designs pretty things for the internets.
Daniel Conner. SLC.
Mr. Conner won the Struck Fantasy Football Championship last year. He was a merciless trash-talker. He let no one forget his victory. This year, the gods of nerd football have evened the score and the DPC currently resides in the basement of the league. You know what they say about karma… Anyway, Dan’s not a complete lost cause. He likes to fish Henry’s Fork in Island Park, ID and he (supposedly) graduated from Thunderbird (THE American Graduate School of International Management). I guess we’ll believe him… but that school sounds totally made up to me.
Melissa Crespo. @this_melis. SLC. (Honorary Induction)
While the UofU soccer standout has returned to an institution of higher learning and no longer sits, meets and eats with us—she said something on her last day that we’ll probably never forget: “Good things come from following the rules, but nothing great.” Well said, Mojo. Well. Said. (Cue swelling strings… and here we go with the slow clap… Clap… Clap… Clap… And, BOOM, thunderous applause!)
