It’s been nearly two years since you’ve met everybody else on our team, but we’re growing and we have a new member of our team! James Moro has joined the Weston team as our new Helpdesk Consultant. Read on to read more about James. 

  • Name, and title and (to quote Office Space) “What would you say you do here?”: My name is James Moro, and I am Weston’s new Helpdesk Consultant.
  • Hometown and how did you end up where you are? I grew in Pittsburgh, PA, and came to Bend by way of Las Vegas – Laguna Beach – San Diego – Boulder – Denver — Oregon. I’m proud to announce that no wagon wheels were lost during our trek on the Oregon Trail out to Bend, and no one died of dysentery.
  • How did you end up at Weston? I previously worked at an MSP in Boulder and survived several feats of strength, wit and cunning (a.k.a. the Weston application process).
  • Favorite part about Weston? Weston is a very transparent company committed to allowing its employees to genuinely feel invested in the business.
  • What do you do for fun in your spare time? Shredding powder on Mt. Bachelor, mountain biking, hiking with my dog, photography, camping, staring at all the jaw-dropping scenery in Oregon with a dumbfounded look on my face.
  • What do in your spare time that nobody would guess? Wedding Photography
  • If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? The end of the fossil fuel age.
  • What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Cleaning my cat’s litter box. How does a tiny cat create such a horrible smell?!?!
  • If you had to pick one word to describe yourself, what would it be? Passionate
  • If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet? Nikola Tesla
  • Choose a movie title for the story of your life. Rad.
  • If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why? A young Van Damme –Because: Van Damme…Duh.
  • What do you want to be when you grow up? Professional Snowboarder / Mountain Biker
  • If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose? Flight
  • What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done in your life? Crashed my sport bike at 130mph during a trackday. I rolled out of it and walked away with minor bruises. The bike: not so much.
  • 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? Elon Musk.
  • If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? My dog. Just to experience the world through his eyes.
  • What is the worst pet you have ever had? I can’t really say I’ve had a bad pet. I love animals. But I’ll say that grass snakes do not make great pets.
  • How do you get your caffeine? Redbull – the green one.
  • What’s the strangest talent you have? Ambidextrous eyebrows. I can do “the wave” with my eyebrows.
  • If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? A water filtration system, a good knife and my dog.
  • Where’s Waldo? In a tricked out Sprinter adventure van down by the Metolius river.
  • A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? My name is Inigo Montoya! Prepare to die! (He’s pretty mad that global warming melted his home and wears the sombrero purely out of spite).
  • If I opened your fridge, what would I see? Ginger Cider, leftover pizza, Ponzu sauce (I put it on everything)
  • Here’s $20. What are you going to do with it? I’d go explore a new foodie spot in Bend.
