What is your role here at 321?
To be frank, I keep the 321 team going with my positive attitude, my stellar personality, and my humerus dad jokes.
How did you get into your field?
You would think a guy like me would be working at a university’s science department, right? Believe it or not, I actually wanted to be an actor. Grandpa Scully appeared in the 1929 Disney classic, The Skeleton Dance and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. I had an agent and went on an audition for the Fox drama, Bones about a decade ago, but I ended up not getting the role. A friend of mine was working at an ad agency, and the rest is history.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
My work days tend to all bleed together, because I actually live at 321’s office. During the workday, I nosh on candy corn (Yes, it is delicious), blast some music in my headphones, and stay out of the way. However, when the rest of the office goes home, that’s when I’m really able to shake my bones and be myself. Just an FYI, the cleaning crew plays with all of the Funko Pops, Legos, and assorted toys on all of your desks.
What are you playing in your headphones during the workday?
I really like all music, but lately, I’ve been revisiting some ‘90s hip hop and mid-aughts alternative. Specifically, Bone Thugs N Harmony and Yeah Yeah Yeah’s 2006 album, Show Your Bones.
What is the weirdest thing about you that people at work may not know?
I’m not really a big fan of Halloween. I’m more of a Thanksgiving guy.
So whose uncle are you?
I’m everyone’s uncle; it’s all in me. Seriously though, it’s just a nickname. Apparently I have “Fun Uncle Energy” whatever that means.
