Arthur de la Rocha
Growing up in San Jose, Arthur was always outside riding bikes, skateboards and riding around on public transportation. Oh, and a like a lot of us at ZURB, he was really into gaming. He even had a good run as a competitive gamer in Counter-Strike. First-person shooters and "Gears of War" is his forte.
But Arthur always dabbled in code, helping his friends do everything from making free websites to customizing profiles on social media sites. Eventually, Arthur thought this might actually make a good career. While getting schooled in the South Bay Area, Arthur stumbled across ZURB. At the time, he was looking for an image slider for a class project. But he heard the angels sing and realized that ZURB was less than 15 minutes down the street from him. He took the plunge and applied for an internship, which he says was a great decision. That internship turned into a contractor position, which then turned into a permanent position!
When Arthur is not plugging away at ZURB, he enjoys Djing, drawing letters, taking photos, watching "The Office," and getting out of the city to enjoy the views. And, of course, spending time with his family and friends.
