This week’s edition of the Zapponian Spotlight is on ZCLT member Tyson W.!
We sat down and asked Tyson a few questions to get to know him a little bit more…
If you could be a mixed drink what drink would you be and why?
T: Scotch on the Rocks
It is abrasive at first encounter and contains a hint of class. Smoother with water and you feel better once finished
If you had a plane ticket to go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
T: Fiji-Second best goofy footed curl, heaviest waves, and easily the most gorgeous place in the world
Tell us an embarrassing moment…
T: I am English major and was playing Trivial Pursuit with my best friends. One is a valedictorian of their law school, one is a doctor, two are grads in the MBA program at USC. I was winning and they each had one piece left to go. My question was "what do you call an angle greater than 90 degrees." Being a scholar, I didn't know the answer. After about 20 min they tossed their pieces and told me that the word is “obtuse”. Never played with them again!
We hear that you were inducted into your High School Hall of Fame. What was the best part of that and how did it make you feel?
T: I most enjoyed seeing the slideshow from my junior year and reliving that time since was a magical year for me. It was fun to run into people from high school after 18 or so years and catch up.
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
T: Succeeding in a leadership role here at Zappos while also being able to be an editor of a local book featuring local authors
