We’re very proud to announce the addition of Bryan Fodness to the Envato Support Team! Joining us from the desert oasis that is Las Vegas, Bryan has extraordinary customer service experience that’s sure to be a jackpot for the team. (Be prepared for plenty of Vegas puns, Bryan.)
He’s been gracious enough to answer a few questions and we hope you’re just as excited to welcome him to the Envato Community as we are!
Thanks for taking some time to answer these questions, Bryan. Please tell us a little about yourself.
My journey to Envato started when I met my good friend Jarel Remick for the first time. Over the last few years as I learned more about the opportunities and culture at Envato, it quickly became clear that Envato was where I belonged. I most recently worked for Zappos.com which is well known worldwide for their outstanding customer service and I’m really excited to bring my knowledge and fresh ideas to the support team. Besides customer service I have also worked with people who have special needs as an in home care provider.
Ohh and I also have a cat named Max that is a black belt in Karate.
Where are you from and what’s your favorite thing about your city?
I’m originally from the South Dakota / Iowa area, but have been in Las Vegas for nearly three years. I love the endless sunshine, the 24 hour culture, and the proximity to so many great cities. I do sometimes miss the overly friendly, close-knit, culture you find in the Midwest, so I’m excited to have a position that will allow me to visit as I please.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies?
I love watching and playing nearly every sport possible. I also really enjoy traveling. This summer alone I will be making my second trip to Australia and numerous European countries. I’m continuously trying to learn new things, and always seeking new adventures.
Tell us about your home workspace.
Right now I have a small desk in the corner of my living room that I work from, but with my roommate moving out and recently starting my journey at Envato, I will definitely be turning that room into an enjoyable work space. I can see a U-Haul and an Ikea store in my near future!
If you could be a superhero, what would your superpower be and why?
Why are you doing this to me? This may be the single hardest question to answer on the face of this earth! I think I have to go with the popular answer of being able to fly. I’ve done it many times in my dreams and it’s such an amazing feeling!
