This week’s Zapponian Spotlight is on Dave H., a business process analyst for Zappos IP, Inc. Dave is a Las Vegas native who loves tennis, singing and acting (he’s a theater guy). He lives with his wife and their three little dogs Zoe, Jack and Sam. Dave is also a big fan of the word “jazzed”, as in “I’m real jazzed about being on Zapponian Spotlight!”
Read on to learn more about Dave:
Pick 3 words to describe your personal style.
D: Preppy, classic and Fall (some of you would understand that one. I never wear shorts and layer when it is 100 degrees outside).
Who is your favorite musician or band?
D: Favorite is tough but I’ll give you three of the top ones: The Script, Boys Like Girls and The Goo Goo Dolls
Name 3 things you never leave home without
D: Wallet, Keys, Phone (I know that is totally boring, but considering I have a mantra that I say every morning to ensure I’m not forgetting any of these things, it felt appropriate)
If you could have dinner with one famous person, who would it be?
D: Leonardo DiVinci. You didn’t say dead or alive so I went with dead. He just seems like he had a lot going on.
What’s the weirdest thing to ever happen to you?
D: In high school, a girl offered me 100 bucks to eat a small cockroach. And she paid up!!!
What’s your favorite part about working at Zappos?
D: Getting to work with people that I know to be brilliant and that I admire and yet still being made to feel that somehow I am appreciated!
