What’s your favourite part about working at Sidi.io?

My favourite part about working for Sidi.io is the people and the ever-changing environment. I wake up excited to find out what today has in place, and every person on the team only enhances that experience. I’ve only been here for a month and a half, yet I feel like I’ve known everyone for much longer. The level of kindness and ambitious energy is excellent too.

Also, happy hours on Fridays are always a great laugh.

How did you first learn about Sidi.io?

From a friend of mine, he did an internship here back in early 2019.

How do you define success?

Success to me is feeling content and excited with where I am in the moment, not stressing about the future and knowing that I am on the right path, surrounded by people that inspire me and help me become a better person.

If the past version of myself is proud of me today, that feels like success.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is people who continuously talk during movies.

What did you want to be when growing up?

I wanted to be an Architect, like my dad.

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?

I enjoy movies, music, being a kid at heart, thrifting, going out with friends, and I also like making movie-inspired posters like the ones here.

What has been an important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?

The most important innovation I have witnessed in my life would have to be the iPhone. As a creative person, being able to capture, edit and share anything at any time with a piece of metal that fits in my pocket is pretty cool to me.

What was the last concert you attended?

I was fortunate enough to see the Rolling Stones just outside of Toronto last year with some of my best friends, and well, that was an incredible experience.

What is one of your favourite quotes?

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

–Ferris Bueller
