Why do you enjoy working at vXchnge?
I like working at vXchnge because it gives me the opportunity to help bring some positivity to a customer’s day, whether just being cheerful on the phone or doing something as simple as helping them to reset a password, it makes me feel like I made an impact on the customer and on vXchnge. I also enjoy working at vXchnge because it has allowed me to be part of an amazing team, while also giving me an opportunity for career growth. Having great mentors, like Elif and Frank, that guide us and lead by example is something that I really admire and motivates me to do the same.

What was your favorite job you had when you were growing up?
Before my first “official” job, I would help people in the neighborhood by mowing lawns and shoveling snow. I enjoyed this because I knew I was helping people and I also love being outside in both the summer and winter.
If you could come up with one invention or solution for the world, no matter how crazy it may be, what would you invent?
I would love to invent a Teleportation machine – I love to travel but hate the long process of getting there. Another idea would be a super snooze button that gives you ten extra hours of sleep by pausing time. (my wife could tell you how much I love to sleep!)
What fictional place would you most like to go to?
As a Beatles fan, it would be pretty cool to go on the Yellow Submarine.
