Earlier this week I filled y'all in on some details about my side project, AKA my new night time job, Pieceology Vintage. But, as some of you know, in addition PVTG I do have a full time day job in Marketing. Each month at said job there is a company newsletter that is emailed out to all employees. In the newsletter one employee is interviewed and featured each month. We have over 300 employees so to be chosen as the featured employee is pretty rare. But alas, this month it was finally my turn! This is a pretty basic interview but I thought it'd be fun to share with my blog readers so y'all can get to know me a little bit better. So, without further ado, here is my interview:
