How long have you worked at Causeway?
Since the long ago times of 2017.
What would you say you do here?
Whatever the VPs need me to do, spanning from researching for election and census data and helping with client projects to working our check scanner.
What is your most memorable experience at Causeway?
I’ve got two. One was after weeks of complaining about the arrangement of the furniture at the office, Molly, Madeleine, and I moved the furniture, and I was able to have my desk near a window. The second was during one week when the Eagles were playing the Saints, Skelly stuck an Eagles jersey to the ceiling right near the door and my desk, so I retaliated and put a giant Saints banner on the front door after work to greet him the next morning. The Saints won that game, I believe, but I don’t keep track of those kind of things.
Do you have a spouse? Children? Pets? Plants?
Where did you grow up?
In Da Parish with the crawfish they caught in Arabi, but family learned good and moved to Old Metairie.
Where do you live and what is one thing you love about it?
In a townhouse away from my parents! Did I mention it’s away from my parents? And 7 minutes away from the office?
What do you like to do when you are not working?
The real question is when am I actually working. In reality, I mostly exercise and read. Louisiana actually has pretty good weather for walking if there’s no deep freeze, blazing heat, rain, or hurricanes.
Did you take up any quarantine hobbies, and, if so, did you stick with them?
No quarantine-specific hobbies, but I did do a bunch of cross-stitch projects and started picking up the guitar along with trying to complete some fitness challenges and keep up the house. There are only so many hours in a day minus those dedicated to sleep and work.
Where is the next place you plan to travel for fun?
The extravagant and never-before-traveled-at-Causeway trip to Washington, D.C. in January 2022 at the latest.
