What is your perfect work day/work week?

Start the week with a good scrum to reset from the weekend, figure out the challenges ahead and collaborate with various Q-mates on creative, interesting, fun solutions to creative, interesting, fun problems. Then, kill it all week, learn a new thing or two that I didn’t know last week, and finally end the week with more Q-mates gathered around a good bottle of scotch. Now THAT’s a great week!

Why Quarry for you? (What brought you here? What keeps you engaged?)

I came to Quarry while my wife and I were shifting our lives from the suburban/downtown rat-race back to a more civilized, rural culture. What I found here was more than I could have expected. I had stumbled into the most unique and amazing environment I’ve ever worked in. Quarry combines the sophistication, quality and flair of any top-caliber downtown agency with the coolness and culture you could only find in a small town shop. What keeps me engaged is the wealth of talent and the collaborative, supportive spirit amongst my fellow Q-mates. They make you feel like part of a family, and they play as hard as they work.

Would you rather go into outer space or to the depths of the ocean? Why?

The depths of the ocean. Because before you venture outwards, you must first look inwards.
