Q & A with Connor

Q: What is your role at RocketBuild?
A: Solutions Consultant

Q: What do you do for fun?
A: I love to cook and tend the garden in the summer. Normally you can find me on a couch with my wife and dogs, Chewie and Solo, watching tv or reading.

Q: What’s your favorite local lunch spot?
A: At risk of giving my favorite spots away, I’ll just drop a plug for Burritos and Beer. Think of it as like a family owned chipotle—line style burritos and bowls to go.

Q: What are you super passionate about?
A: I’m a big Brandon Sanderson fan. I love the Stormlight Archives and Warbreaker.

Q: If you had to stay up all night, what drinks and snacks would you need to keep you going?
A: I’ve been known to finish an entire gallon of goldfish if the mood is right.

Q: What got you into your career?
A: I don’t know if there’s really an easy answer to this, I just try to always learn new things and help those along the way. I try to make sure I believe in the work I’m doing, as well as myself, and the rest tends to follow.

Q: What’s your favorite band or artist?
A: Big jazz fan, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk, Chuck Mangione, but I’ll say my favorite is a Canadian synth-pop artist named LIGHTS

Q: What’s your favorite type of project or client to work with?
A: I feed off the energy of my team, more so than content of the work itself. As long as I can get that feeling of bumping shoulders working with a great team, I’m happy.

Q: Fun Fact:
A: I enjoy collecting vintage manual wind watches.
