Meet Anthony, the newest member of the Shop It To Me team. Since he provided such eloquent responses to all my questions I will forgo the paraphrasing and give you his real words.
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Michigan but in the last 13 years I’ve lived in Hungary, Austria, California, North Carolina, Austria again, and finally California again. I first visited San Francisco when I was 15 and fell in love with the city, choosing to move here from Austria because I think it offers the best quality of life of any city in the US.
What are your hobbies?
Traveling, drums, fitness/nutrition, snowboarding, and electronic music
Do you have any hidden talents?
3-ball juggling, though nothing too fancy ;-) That, and abilities in German, Spanish, Farsi, and Hungarian.
What excited you most about joining Shop It To Me?
I love finding a good deal on clothes so naturally, the nature of SITM’s service appealed to me. In terms of an engineering challenge, I wanted to be in a small(-ish) Rails shop with fellow top-notch engineers where my contributions would be seen by scores of passionate users and I could have an impact for years to come.
Anything else you would like to share?
I maintain a blog at the The Bull Og
Thanks for the great interview Anthony and welcome to Shop It To Me!
