We’re only as good as our team, and they’re a pretty awesome team. Whenever we bring on a new team member, we like to introduce them (see all of our past team member introductions here). This month, we introduce you to our newest member of our service team (and the second drummer after Jake), helpdesk consultant Connor Smith.
Name, and title and what would you say you do here? Connor Smith, Helpdesk Consultant. To better your life with technology (and a smile)!
Hometown: I’ve grown up here in Bend, Oregon
Favorite part about Weston? My favorite part about Weston is the people that I get to help, whether that be directly or indirect. I also enjoy the sarcastic banter of the office.
What do you do for fun in your spare time? I like to play drums, go on hikes, and enjoy the outdoors of Central Oregon. Some of my favorite places to date are Tam McArthur Rim and the Lava River Caves.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing? All of them. I can’t choose just one!
If you had to pick one word to describe yourself, what would it be? I can only choose one? Inquisitive
Choose a movie title for the story of your life. A Political Memoir About a Person Who Likes His Drums.
If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose? The ability to immediately fix problems.
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be? Gandalf. It’s literally having the ability to have the Fourth of July at tip of your fingers… Err… Staff.
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? A dolphin. Those guys tend to have quite a bit of fun!
What is the worst pet you have ever had? I’ve never had a bad pet, though I did have a cat that liked to claw you every time you walked by…
How do you get your caffeine? From church on Sunday morning. They have some good coffee.
If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? My drums, a LifeStraw, and a trailer full of pineapples. I wouldn’t last too long, but it sounds pretty fun.
Where’s Waldo? Somewhere around the Bend that turned from Redmond, making a straight line to Albuquerque. Nobody’s heard from him since.
A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. Why is he here? It’s probably the new hire from the local taco shop. Can’t say no to a taco-loving penguin!
If I opened your fridge, what would I see? Arizona Teas, Pepsi, and some assorted snacks.
Here’s $20. What are you going to do with it? Great! Now I can buy two pairs of drumsticks! My neighbors are going to love me!
What is the best gift you’ve ever received? My drums!
What is your favorite discussion topic? Politics. Simply, politics.
If you could plan a trip anywhere, where would you go and why? I would probably go to Switzerland. There are some great vistas out in the countryside.
