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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
