Meet Rachel Vorm

Role: Visual Designer
Time at Fuzzy Math: ~5 years

Q: What inspires you?

A: Just people being themselves and having fun. Seeing people’s passions and being truly themselves inspires me and makes me happy. There’s an orchestra in Vienna that makes instruments out of vegetables every year. They make a soup for the audience with the parts of the vegetables they don’t use for the instruments.

Q: What was the last book you read?

A: Babel: Around the World in Twenty Languages by Gaston Dorren

Q: If you could switch jobs with anyone, who would it be?

A: I think I’d want to be some sort of conservationist, like for the DNR. My uncle used to be a prairie burner, and he got to take care of prairie grass and bison on protected lands.

Q: If we were to walk in on you in your apartment, unannounced, what would we most likely find you doing?

A: Probably talking to my dogs and telling them that they’re my best friends.

Q: How would you describe Fuzzy Math in three words?

A: Smart, Thoughtful, Resourceful

Meet Nick Leonard

Role: UX Designer
Time at Fuzzy Math: ~8 years

Q: Dogs or Cats?

A: I like owning cats and I like being around dogs.

Q: What gets you out of bed in the morning?

A: A screaming child.

Q: How would you describe your job to a seven-year-old?

A: I investigate problems to better understand how things work and figure out better ways to do them.

Q: What’s the most recent app you’ve downloaded but have yet to use?

A: Gardening apps — I’m rather optimistic that I will actually try to get ahead of doing something in the yard this year. Mostly I have yet to check it, because it’s going to tell me that I’m already behind.

Q: Describe the color yellow to somebody who is blind.

A: Immediately you think about warmth. Yellow is warm but not hot. Specifically, the feeling of heat from the sun but in moderation.
