For this week’s edition of Zapponian Spotlight, we’re getting to know a little bit about Erin J. from the Visual Design team in Zappos Development, Inc.
This native New Yorker is a true East Coast girl at heart. She’s obsessed with tea (she’s hardly ever without a cup in her hand), pepperoni, scrapbooking, softball and horror flicks.
Read on to learn more about Erin:
Pick 3 words to describe your personal style.
E: Free spirit, Traveler, and Creative
Who is your favorite musician or band.
E: I would say Less Than Jake, Bouncing Souls, RX Bandits and other bands of that genre. I like any punk/ska band that’s been around for about 15-20 years.
Name 3 things you never leave home without.
E: An abundance of tea, my wallet, and myself!
If you could have dinner with one famous person, who would it be?
E: Some famous histortorian with a background in Egyptian or Roman history. I would love to talk shop. I blame my dad for my love of history.
What’s the weirdest thing to ever happen to you?
E: When I was about 16, I was in the London airport gift shop waiting for my plane. Out of nowhere, some random guy came up to me and asked if I was from NY. When I said yes, he turned to his buddy and said, "Told you so". He had bet his friend a beer I was from NY. I thought it was funny.
What’s your favorite part about working at Zappos HQ?
E: Whenever I get to work and I’m talking to a friend on the phone, I always say, "I’m on campus so I’ll have to let you go". So to me, it feels like I’m going to college every day for an 8-hour class.
