Here are some other fun facts about Michael!
Before working at SharpNet, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’d ever had?
M: When I was 15, for my first job ever, I got hired at a local wing shop to hold a sign to the store, dressed up in a chicken costume. My first day I worked it was 90 degrees out and I had to wear the chicken costume. This was probably the most miserable I have ever been and quit at the end of my first day.
How did you first learn about SharpNet?
M: Browsing Indeed! I had just moved back to Colorado after graduating from Montana State University and was looking for work. I really enjoyed the interview process and immediately felt like SharpNet had a great culture and would be a good place to work.
How do you balance your career at SharpNet and your free time?
M: Making sure I make the most out of my weekends, and if the weather is nice enough, I try to do stuff after work on weekdays. During my free time, I like to go rock climbing, play disc golf, snowboard, and just be outside.
How has SharpNet helped you in your career development?
M: SharpNet has helped me a ton! When I first started, I had very little experience in Google Ads outside of running a campaign for a couple months in college for a nonprofit organization. After being at SharpNet for almost a year, I feel like I have expanded my knowledge a lot and have a pretty good understanding of most aspects of digital marketing. I still learn new things every day, and it keeps things interesting.
If you could pick one theme for SharpNet to turn into a book about the company, what would it be?
M: Something about ninjas, because we are like silent warriors doing all the work behind the scenes to get the best results for our clients.
Any random facts you could share?
M: I used to have a three-legged dog named Chloe. She would still run everywhere and could keep up with other dogs just fine on three legs. She was probably the best pet I ever had.
Are you messy or organized?
M: Depends, I try to be pretty organized but it never lasts long. It is usually an endless process of getting organized and then everything falling apart over the next month, and then organizing everything again.
Best vacation you’ve been on?
M: Kauai for sure! I have been to a lot of different places, but Kauai is one of a kind. Everything there is beautiful and there is so much to see and do. I even got to go on a helicopter tour of the island, which was one of the coolest experiences I have had. I think if I could live anywhere, it would be there and I would love to go back again sometime.
If you could be any force of nature, what would it be?
M: Probably water. It is calming and carefree. Unless it’s a tsunami…
