We’re very happy to have Matt Weaver as a member of our Racepoint Group team! Get to know our one of our newest Account Supervisors in this intimate Q&A.
1. How would you explain what you do for work in 3 sentences or less to your 7 year old niece?
I guess what other people want to read in the newspaper before they realize it’s what they want
2. What is your favorite website, blog or online community?
Unofficially – ESPN.com. I’ve been a sports fanatic my whole life, even played semi-professional football after college. Officially – Twitter. All of my news sources aggregated onto one page. Perfect for business and personal.
3. What is the last book you read?
The Wolf of Wall Street by Jordan Belfort.
4. What do you have as your desktop wallpaper right now?
Hank Walker’s LIFE Magazine photo of JFK and RFK in an LA hotel room prior to the 1960 DNC.
5. What is your favorite drink?
Scotch – can I write that here? If not – water.
6. Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston?
Jennifer Aniston, no debate.
7. What is your favorite music group or artist?
8. What are your favorite smells?
Freshly cut grass at the end of August. Reminds me of the beginning of football season.
9. Do you have any nicknames?
I was an obese child and my classmates called me “Matty Fatty.”
10. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Indiana Jones. Not an actual archeologist, but Indiana Jones. When I found out what real archeologists do I wanted nothing to do with the profession.
Extra Credit: If you could go on a cross-country road trip with any celebrity (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go?
Vegas with Hunter S. Thompson
