Every time the AWeber family gets a little bit bigger, we can’t help but brag about it. So without further ado, we’re pleased to announce Brett Erpel as our new Senior Software Engineer.
Obviously Brett is a software engineering jedi, but we like to also get to know our team members beyond what you’d discover on LinkedIn.
Like the fact that when Brett’s not working, you’ll find him spending quality time with his KitchenAid, baking breads and sweet treats. Or that he enjoys spending time on the disc golf green, trying to get a hole-in-one for the second time. Or that when he’s with his 10-month-old daughter, he often "boops" her nose with his finger (a habit that is so ingrained, he sometimes “boops” off the water faucet).
You also wouldn’t learn that Brett’s a culinary visionary. If he could create a holiday in honor of his favorite foods, it would be Meat Day: a celebration where a variety of meats (and asparagus, if you’re lucky) grill to perfection, craft beer chills in a metal tub, and all attendees enjoy yard games and a live performance of Phish. A lovely day indeed.
Long before he began his career in tech, Brett dreamed of becoming an architect, following in the footsteps of his idol Frank Lloyd Wright. But there was something about software engineering that caught his eye – like being able to jump in and start coding right away without the need of a 5 year degree –that he couldn’t resist.
And we’re certainly happy about that too.
Welcome to the AWeber team, Brett!
