Introducing Kristian King, our new Sales Engineer. Kristian will be working alongside clients to scope, design and budget their Magento projects. With almost two decades of development knowledge, his background makes him one heck of an asset to the Creatuity team.
Sarah: First off, where are you from?
Kristian: Fort Worth, Texas.
S: Okay, so right around the corner. How did you get here today – what’s your history?
K: I have a 20 year background in tech and about 15 years in web design and development and about a 5 year history working with magento.
S: What is your role at Creatuity and what does it entail?
K: I am a Magento Sales Engineer – it entails working directly with clients and defining and creating a solution for their magento projects. That’s a pretty broad overview.
S: If you were on a deserted island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?
K: My favorite music, I would bring my wife and I would bring a bottle of vodka.
S: That’s a pretty great combination. How do you like to spend your free time?
K: I love spending my free time with family and friends vacationing or traveling. I like being creative, spending time doing creative projects – drawing, painting and design.
S: That’s awesome! I didn’t realize you were so artsy. If you were a cereal, what kind of cereal would you be and why?
K: *laughs* Um let me think about that…I would be fruity pebbles, because they’re fun!
S: Do you have any pets?
K: I have cat, her name is Bebe. She is crazy, playful, irritable and only wants your time when she wants it.
S: Describe yourself in three words.
K: Easy-going, creative and playful.
S: Would you rather go to the beach or the mountains and why?
K: That’s a tough one. I think I would probably go to the beach because I like the sun, surf and sand.
S: This one is a little out there *laughs* – What is a body part you wouldn’t mind losing and why?
K: *laughs* Wow…I’m kind of attached to all of them. I think that’s my answer. I guess maybe a pinky toe if I had to choose.
S: What is a quote that inspires you?
K: “I don’t believe in beatles I just believe in me.” -John Lennon
S: What is on your bucket list?
K: Hmm I don’t really have a bucket list…but I’d like to travel more. I’d like to skydive and drive a formula 1 race-car.
S: If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
K: Man that’s tough, I love food…I cook a lot…I do love manicotti. So I think probably manicotti!
S: And to wrap things up, what is your personal philosophy or mantra?
K: “If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”
