Q&As with Jason Droste
Jason, where did you work before LocateSmarter and how has your previous job experience helped you in your role today?
“Before being hired at LocateSmarter, I worked for a local utility company. I worked for a support department in the company which gave me a diverse skill set. The most helpful thing I learned there is the ability to work with people that have very different work agendas and priorities”.
What is one thing that has most surprised you about LocateSmarter since you started at the beginning of July?
“Without a doubt it’s the dedication of the team to help each other succeed. The synergy among team members to complete tasks is impressive. The diverse range of skills and expertise demonstrated, along with the dedication to quality, is as equally impressive. From the first day I felt like I belonged to a great team”.
When you’re not at work, how do you like to spend your free time?
“First and foremost my free time is spent with my family – they are my world. Second, I love music. When I am not listening to music, I am playing bass, writing, recording and playing shows. Being in a band and “gigging” takes a lot of time and effort so I am fortunate to have a spouse that is supportive of that”.
What is one thing people may not know about you?
“I love to illustrate and draw. Most of my art work is influenced by comics or fantasy art work. Clayton Crain is my favorite illustrator/digital artist”.
If you could have dinner with anyone – dead or alive – who would you choose?
“I would have dinner with my grandmother who helped raise me. She passed on 18 years ago. We were very close”.
