Just One More Byte - An Interview with Josh L.
Thanks to Kate Goldfield, our wonderful volunteer, for interviewing Josh!
This technology wizard loves role playing games, and would love to work at Microsoft one day. He edits the Sunny All Day Newspaper, and creates all of the games and crossword puzzles. Let's learn a little bit more about Josh.
1. What do you love about being an artist at The Art Department?
There is a unique understanding of creativity. I have ideas, no doubt about it, but it gets better working with different people on different things. As often as the saying goes... "Thou shall not learn anything if you keep to thy self."
2. What are your strengths?
I like that I am so good with technology. I am really good with all kinds of gizmos and gadgets.
3. What do you struggle with?
Sometimes I struggle with learning. It is always rewarding to learn, but it is sometimes challenging.
4. What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is salad. I like everything but eggs and olives! Roast beef is my favorite topping.
5. Who do you admire?
I admire Bill Gates. He started an entire company from nothing!
6. What is your spirit animal?
A prismatic dragon. Its scales look like a prism. This represents a devotion to balance, and the wisdom that things come and go. Sometimes, truth has three sides.
7. What are you most proud of?
My intelligence and brainpower.
8. What would you do if you could do anything for one day?
Work at Microsoft or IBM
9. What is your dream?
My dream is to launch Knights of Avalon, a role playing strategy game I have been working on. It's kind of like Dungeons and Dragons meets League of Legions. There is a lot of parts to this, including graphic design, character generation and many others.
10. What is your favorite music?
Anything but rap and hip hop. I do like the band Kamelot, too. Also I have a tendency to enjoy Darude's SANDSTORM!
11. What is your favorite quote, or do you have any advice for people?
My favorite quote is "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
My advice for people is this... If something seems wrong do something about it.
12. What is the most inspiring thing about The Art Department?
I am inspired by many talents here, sure I have my own, but the biggest thing about being here, is that some people learn from you, while others teach.
Thanks for sharing some of yourself, Josh!
