Resident Man Behind the Curtain

Why I party
In the words of Hunter S. Thompson, “It never got weird enough for me.” As a compulsive wanderer, afflicted by an existential case of A.D.D., it takes shifting colors to keep me interested. Why? I’m basically a hyperactive puppy.

Favorite part of working here
Where to start? Balloons. Happy kids. The first time I’ve ever liked my coworkers. I move heavy objects, organize the warehouse, the job stays moving and I basically get to play with toys & costumes all day.
