We've been doing a lot of arithmetic around ZURB HQ lately. So much that we've lost count of the number of new ZURBians we've brought on board. That's why we added an accountant to the team to help us keep count and help us calculate the last digit of Pi. All kidding aside, we brought her on to make sure our numbers added up.
So without further ado, please welcome …
Afton Giles, A Redhead for Numbers
Afton has lived most of her life in Palo Alto, but she was actually born in Tehran, Iran. She's got a knack for crunching numbers, holding a degree in Finance and spending her career in one accounting role or another. But numbers aren't the only things that gets her jazzed. She's really fascinated by technology and how fast its changing.
Before becoming one of us, Afton worked with IT geeks and engineers who she thought had much better toys to play with — like remote control hovercrafts. She says it was one of the coolest jobs she'd ever had. Before coming here, of course. That brings us to a little fact about Afton and one of the reasons she's come to work with us.
Her biggest pet peeve? Bad design. As she says:
Never dreamed I would be lucky enough to work with designers and see first hand what makes good design.
Another interesting tidbit about Afton is that she's met Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, who she says is very tall. However, she's also more of a "Star Wars" fan, so she'll fit in with the majority of us who are. Oh, and she'll fit in with those of us who are Trekkies as well.
So everyone say "hello" to Afton, our newest ZURBian.
