What do you do at Bonanza?

I am one of the fine folks writing the code that makes Bonanza fun and easy to use. My specialty is programming user interfaces and experiences. I don't just make features that work, I make them pretty, too.

What project are you most proud of / what was your favorite project you’ve worked on?

My favorite so far was the overhaul of our stats pages for sellers. The old stats page had a lot of data for sellers that was not easy to digest or use. Working with our stellar designer James, we were able to make that data accessible, beautiful, and really fun to explore. It also gave me the opportunity to listen to our sellers and implement feedback based on their needs. I love working on things that put more power into our sellers' hands and give them more control over their business.

Which Bonanza tool is a best-kept secret?

I love shopping via the hand-picked lists! Our curator Emma obviously makes some killer lists, but our users continue to amaze me with the sweet lists they put together. They come up with super themes and find lots of unique products. It's also fun to brainstorm a theme and scour the site for products to make a list yourself!

What upcoming projects are you most excited about?

I have been working for the past couple months on some customer marketing tools that will allow our sellers to learn more about their customers, build relationships with them, and drive repeat business to their booths and webstores. They're going to give our entrepreneurs a lot of power to run their business the way they want. I can't wait for everyone to use them!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A ballerina or a hockey player.

If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?

The Fig and the Pig burger from Li’l Woody's, side of queso fries, Molly Moon's salted caramel shake.

What is your drink of choice?

Fine Irish whiskey, neat.

What was the last book/article you read?

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Favorite sports team?

Does Valentino Rossi count as a sports team? If not, the Milwaukee Brewers.
