What is/has been your favorite project to participate on at Expensify?

Refactoring the sign in page. It turned out very well, and the team contributed some really cool images for your sign-ining pleasure. 

Life outside of Expensify?

An abysmal chasm of confusion, loneliness, and darkness. (He’s on a pretty bad FIFA losing streak.)

Outside of Expensify and FIFA, you can find him wandering about the city by day, playing soccer by night, and getting $10 haircuts in the Tenderloin bimonthly.

What is your idea of happiness?

A 25 yard knuckler, 20psi of boost in my 1.8T, my Grandma’s meat pie. (Soccer banter, fast cars and Grandma Meola’s fantastic Easter-time dish to the laymen)

What is your idea of misery?

Spending a day with Internet Explorer.

Favorite hero?

My mother Linda – notably for her accomplishment as a back-to-back breast cancer champion.

If you could have a mediocre super power, what would it be?

The ability to untangle headphones with one hand.

How do you want to die?

In exactly the same fashion as General Maximus Decimus Meridius.

What would you look like as a statue of Buddha?


Inspired by his recent trip to South East Asia.
