Matthew Tucker: All right. Hello, everyone. I would like to welcome you to another edition of our meet the employee with the CEO. Today, we have Brandon. Welcome, Brandon. How are you today?
Brandon Wample: I am doing pretty good, man. Thank you.
Matthew: Awesome. Great. So, Brandon, you are about to hit one year with Pegasus. That is about right, right?
Brandon: Yeah, just about probably, next month. I am pretty sure.
Matthew: That is what I got on the paper. So you started off at help desk, but quickly within a couple of months, you were promoted to a team and on the tier two position. So congratulations. That comes in showing your value and you are rewarded so that I congratulate you.
Brandon: Yeah, I appreciate the encouragement we had.
Matthew: Right. Excellent. So why do not you just start off? Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Brandon: I have been working in a helpdesk slash tech role for the past seven years, or so. Getting knowledge here and there where I can a lot of break fix stuff. Just — It’s been a ride. That is for sure the past few years.
Matthew: Past year has been really weird, right? I am sure [chuckles].
Brandon: That is definitely for sure.
Matthew: Good. Great. So, all right. So now we get into the fun part, which I have got some questions about here. So you know, do not blame me. These were provided.
Brandon: All right.
Matthew: On with them. So we start it off. If you want a trip to go anywhere on Earth, where would you go?
Brandon: Well, right now, I would probably want to go to Hawaii.
Matthew: I know. Away from people. Quiet [chuckles].
Brandon: Away from people, quiet and it is not going to be cold there right now [laughter].
Matthew: That is true. You are not a fan of the cold?
Brandon: It is not — I do not mind the cold but getting some sun would be nice too.
Matthew: All right [crosstalk].
Brandon: You know, some once.
Matthew: All right. Let us go to the next one. What is the number one item you would save from your house if it were on fire?
Brandon: [breaths deeply] [pauses] I mean, I do not know if you consider my car.
Brandon: Anything from my house.
Brandon: If not, then my computer [chuckles].
Matthew: All right. Yeah, I have also thought about grabbing my you know, make sure I know where my computer is all the time, so I can grab it if I have to.
Matthew: Have you ever been thrown or banned from a public place? For an out or banned from a public place?
Brandon: I cannot say that I have.
Brandon: I have been told to leave the park, but it was closing at that time, so.
Matthew: All right. That is fair. So I would not ask the why because you just kind of gave it. That is it.
Matthew: That should — If you would describe yourself in five words, what five words would you use?
Brandon: Average, friendly, kind, intelligent, and…
Matthew: I will say, you are pretty cool. We will go away.
Brandon: [chuckles] All right.
Matthew: I have got it cool.
Brandon: All right.
Matthew: What is something your parents or friends who would [chuckles] warn you, or warn us about you?
Brandon: I am a pretty quiet person.
Brandon: It is me.
Matthew: Good. Okay. What is your go-to dance move?
Brandon: Probably, just head-banging.
Matthew: Can we see it? [chuckles] All right, that is good [laughter]. Why did you — Very quick one, but make it simple. Why did you get into the technology field?
Brandon: I have always just kind of been interested in technology. Used to go to computer shows with my dad, growing up, and kind of was the spark for me.
Matthew: All right. Good. If you had to compare yourself to one fictional character. Who would it be?
Brandon: So I want to say like Bruce Banner.
Matthew: Okay. All right. Good. All right, so in closing, we are going to do an exercise here.
Matthew: I am going to show you a picture and I want you to tell me the first thing that comes to your mind.
Brandon: All right [chuckles]. Faith.
Matthew: Faith. All right. One more.
Brandon: An island of some sort.
Matthew: All right. Hey, well, that was good. That is pretty much all the questions, Brandon. And first of all or less, I would like to thank you again for being cool and a really great guy to work with and I know our clients are big fans, and as is the staff, so thanks for being part of the team, and we look forward to the years to come.
Brandon: Yeah. I appreciate it. Thank you.
Matthew: All right. Thank you.
