Today’s edition of Behind the Mug focuses on a long-time member of our team, Ben Woodruff!
Positive Experience Architect
How did you come to join the team?
I joined AgileBits on a part-time basis while still in school. I was a passionate user who had asked a few questions in the forums, and decided to spend some time helping out there. After writing up a few answers for fellow ‘1Passwd’ (as it was called then) users, I received an invite from Dave to join the team.
When I graduated AgileBits was the obvious answer to the question “where do I want to work full time?”
Would you rather night out or evening in?
Evening in! I’m a total introvert so I need time in the evening to ‘decompress’… Away from crowds.
Coffee or Tea?
Tea, but only iced tea. I drink a ton of iced tea. Not big on hot drinks.
What are your hobbies?
When I’m not helping folks solve their password problems, I’m helping folks in my community by volunteering with my local all volunteer fire department. 70% of the firefighters in the United States are volunteer. Small communities often cannot afford career staffing for fire protection.
I’m also an amateur (“ham”) radio operator, play Magic: The Gathering, and enjoy photography.
What’s your patronus?
What’s your nickname and how did you get it?
A lot of my friends call me Radio. It comes from my interest in radio communications — both with amateur radio and public safety two-way radio systems.
