Each week we'll feature one staff member here on the ePS blog. We believe that not only do our staff members deserve recognition for their hard work, but it's also important for our members to know who we are. This week's staff feature is Robert White, Lead Developer (AKA Pixel Ninja).
Why we love Robert: Robert has a big job. He is responsible for researching new concepts to implement in our product offerings, turning the concepts into prototypes, working with the development team to bring the concepts to life, and maintaining and updating our current concepts. From the infant stages of a project all the way through to providing continued support for the final product, Robert has everything under control.
Why you should love him, too: Not only does Robert help create our new features, he also helps keep the site, its features, and its tools, healthy. All websites require regular maintenance and updates, and Robert's experience and expertise help ensure that everything runs smoothly and does what it's supposed to do.
Robert is a wily one, and I was looking forward to getting to know him better with our interview. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did!
Robert, if you were a Ben and Jerry's flavor, what would you be?
"Cake batter. It's simple, yet complex."
What are three words you would use to describe yourself?
"Profound, creative, and loyal."
Who is the most important person in your life?
"It's two people for me, my mom and dad. They taught me a lot about life, and gave me the freedom to pursue what I was passionate about."
What is your favorite outdoor activity?
"Golf. I've been playing since I was four years old. I have great memories of playing with my family, and now I play with my friends which is always a good time, even when I play poorly."
What is your favorite ePropertySites moment?
"Wow, it's hard to name just one. Our office Nerf gun battle was a blast, or the time Chris [Bates] fell out of his chair during a meeting, or the time Greg [Mazurek] kicked a soccer ball and it hit someone's file holder resulting in an explosion of paper. I could name hundreds of moments like that, Greg and Chris have done a wonderful job of providing team synergy and creating a relaxed environment for us."
Thank you, Robert, for using your amazing brains and experience to help us continue to be such a great site!
