IT Staff Spotlight – Rippla

This week’s Staff Spotlight is Rippla. He does a lot of work behind the scenes for the Impact Theory YouTube channel, so we took our chance to get to know him a little better.

  1. What is your job role? My role here at Impact Theory is as Production Manager and mainly deals with the workflows for our YouTube shows.
  2. How did your career at IT begin? I’ve been following Tom and Impact Theory since 2018 and joined ITU in 2020 during the pandemic with that newly found free-time.  ITU led me to joining the ITFK Discord community and diving head first into NFTs.  Through Discord, I had the chance to have some conversations with the team inquiring about opportunities to join Impact Theory.  Coincidentally enough, a week later I saw an IT job post on a popular Production staffing website and applied immediately.  And as they say, the rest is history  
  3. What do you actually do day-to-day? Problem solving.  Working in production is basically dealing with Murphy’s Law several times on a daily basis.  That’s not specific to working here at IT, but production in general.  Combine that with how quickly our company is growing and evolving, new challenges arise literally on a daily basis.   
  4. What do you love most about working for IT? Knowing that the work we do is truly having a life-changing impact on people’s lives.  I know because I was one of those people before ever joining IT.  But I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how incredible the people who work here on this team are.  I’ve only been here for three months and have already made great friends and am surrounded by such a supportive group of people.  And the ability to participate with ideas in any department of the company is icing on the cake.  
  5. Fav book or podcast? Podcast: Impact Theory, duh. 😀 Honorable mentions would be Ed Mylett show, Tim Ferris, The Model Health ShowFiction Book:  The HobbitNon-fiction:  12 Rules for Life, Mindset, and Why We Sleep
  6. Fun fact about you?I built and sold three small businesses in my 20s.  I then spontaneously moved to Los Angeles at 30 years old and began working as a freelancer and mostly floundering aimlessly about my life for three years.  At age 36, I started my first full-time “career” position working for someone else here at Impact Theory.  Everyone has a different path.
