How long have you been at EthoSource? I have been at EthoSource for just over 2 years.

What is a typical day at work for you entail? I’m in charge of all things Marketing and IT related, so I’m not sure there is a “typical” day.  It ranges from prepping graphics for production, to answering questions like “why is iced tea pouring out of the side of my computer?”

What is your favorite part about working at EthoSource? Probably the variety.  Since we are a national company, in a week I can be designing graphics for a truck, laying out a billboard, working on a TV commercial or writing code in SalesForce.  It’s certainly never dull.

On a scale from SO much to words can’t even describe an amount so big, how much do you love your assistant?  I am very fortunate to have an awesome assistant like Hat Trick (aka Nicolette)!  (DISCLAIMER: Since Nicolette is the publisher of this article, the previous statement may have been edited from it’s original state.)**

What’s your favorite chair/what do you sit in? I’ve tried a bunch of different chairs, but I currently sit in a Humanscale Freedom chair.

What are three things you couldn’t live without? Internet access, green tea and a Labrador Retriever

Describe yourself in 3-5 words. I Am Nicolette Miller’s Hero

What do you most look forward to at the end of the workday? Being greeted by my black Lab Logan, and going for a run with my wife Karis

What is a philosophy/quote that you live by? Rule #76: No excuses.  Play like a champion!

Anything else you want to include about yourself…  I have been coaching high school basketball for 15 years.  Our Delivery & Install Manager George is my assistant, though I don’t share his man crush for Channing Tatum.
