Greystone by the Numbers – May 2016

Greystone by the Numbers  is an admittedly convoluted way to introduce you to another side of our team! These brief “interviews” begin by putting everyone’s name in a numbered list and a number randomizer is used to pick 3 “chosen ones” each month.  After those 3 have been chosen, they select 5 numbers from 1 to 67, each corresponding to a question which was unbeknownst to them.  What happens next…is for your reading pleasure.

Angela Davenport, Business Manager

 

If you could trade lives with one person for a day, who would it be and why?angela

No question – Oprah. The why is pretty obvious I would think. I mean, if I was Oprah, think of all the people I could hang out with. Hey, Bill Nye – want to go have lunch with me and Neil Degrasse Tyson? What about you, Obama? Happy Hour later? Lana Parrilla – What about a Spa Day in Bora Bora?

What is the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

I would tell my younger self to quit smoking, drink less soda, save more, travel more and wear more sunscreen.

What’s your guilty pleasure? 

Crab Cheese Wontons and/or Chunky Monkey.

What was your first job?

I worked behind the counter at an “I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt”. I was 14 and I worked after school and on weekends.

What part of pop culture do you wish would just go away?

Anything Kardashian or Reality. Maybe Bieber as well. I feel old.

Bryan Laursen, Business and Technology Advisor

 

BryanLaursen2 (2)If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day, who would it be and why?

You didn’t specify living or dead so I’m going to go with dead… Genghis Khan… I’ve been reading a lot about him lately and I’d be fascinated to find out what a day in the life would look like. There’s very little known about the man but what was written by his enemies.

When in your life have you had a “now or never” moment?

When I decided to take a flying job in the Outback and not return to Canada. That was a big change in trajectory for me.

What is your alter ego’s name?

Aragorn

Where were you born?

Vancouver, Canada

What’s one of the scariest things you’ve ever done?

Bungee jumping with a massive hangover
