To help you get to know the people behind our Staff Picks collection, we asked each team member a little about themselves, how they got interested in their favorite community, and what else they’re doing these days. Read the Q&A, check out their picks, and use the comment section to ask questions or just say hello.
Meet Eddie, who’s all about the Outdoors Community.
Q: What do you do at Massdrop?
A: I'm a Senior Software Engineer. I work on figuring out what products to recommend to our users and then how to get the products to the users fast and reliably.
Q: What do you like most about working at Massdrop?
A: Solving interesting problems while working with fun people. And getting to play with knife samples.
Q: How did you get into Outdoors Community?
A: I've always been into outdoors activities. One of the reasons I moved out to San Francisco was how easy it was to get to some of the most beautiful terrain in the world.
Q: What are some of your favorite products in that community?
A: Lately, I’m a big fan of hammock camping. Hammocks are very small, light weight and eliminate the need for a sleeping pad and tent. I did a 10-day motorcycle adventure trip in Baja Mexico earlier this year and used my hammock every night. Worked perfectly.
Q: What are some of your other hobbies/interests?
A: When I'm not keeping the website up, I'm dirt biking, backpacking or making custom electronics.
