What's your home town?
Why did you decide to join Bold Retail?
I have my fiancee to thank for that. She has an exceptional eye for great opportunities, and she sent me a link to one of Bold Retail's press releases. After reading a few articles on the website describing their approach to e-commerce, I immediately inquired about openings on the team. Speaking with Allan and learning more about the company confirmed it was the right decision.
What's the first thing you ever bought on Amazon.com? What does that say about you?
First thing bought on Amazon and what it says about me: I received a $25 Amazon gift card as a high school graduation present from my dentist. The dot-com bubble had just burst, and, at the time, Amazon still sold mostly books and movies. I remember thinking, "This is kind of cool, but what's the point when I can just go to one of the bookstores in town? These guys won't survive much longer!" After browsing for a bit, I decided to put the money toward the required summer reading list for one of my freshman-level college courses. I guess that says I am thrifty, practical, and a bit of a nerd?
