Every week we’ll introduce you to an Envato staff member or team. This week we meet Ivor Padilla, ThemeForest reviewer and community moderator.

What is it like working for Envato, and what are some of the jobs you’ve had with us?

Collis is Envato’s wise and fearless leader. Every month we’ll choose a bunch of your questions, and Collis will answer them. You can add your questions to the pot by heading over to this Web form. It’s also a great place to catch his previous pearls of wisdom.
