Fuzzy Math Spotlight: Bert, Alfreda & Raven - Bert's desk

Q: Where are you originally from?

A: East Cleveland, Ohio

Q: Favorite hobby?

A: GAMING! Playstation is the elite gaming console. That, and Ohio State Buckeyes football!! My heart bleeds scarlet and gray.

Q: What are you currently watching?

A: Lovecraft Country is definitely a fave of mine. Jordan Peele is a creative horror genius. HBO originals really can’t miss lately though. Euphoria and Insecure are some of my other favorite shows.

Q: What was your first job ever?

A: A pharmacist at CVS used to pay me cash to come sweep up the pharmacy after school twice a week. Think I made like $40 a week doing that. Not bad for a 13-year-old, but…child labor laws. So, yeah.

Q: What are two truths and a lie about you?

A: I’m in a fraternity. I’ve saved a life in the Atlantic ocean before. I have sisters that are triplets.

Q: Where are you from originally? 

A: Vilnius, Lithuania.

Q: What’s playing in your headphones at work?

A: It’s an eclectic mix. From Blossom Dearie to Sade to HAIM to Cardi B, I’m all over the place. During the actual work hours, it’s between a Reading Jazz playlist and lo-fi.

Q: What item can you not leave home without? 

A: A good pen and sunglasses.

Q: What was your first job ever? 

A: Michaels, the arts and crafts store. I started when I was 16 and worked there for years. I loved it and still know my local store like the back of my hand! 

Q: If you could switch jobs with someone for a day, what or who would it be? 

A: A marine biologist who studies whales. But just for a day! I really love being a UX designer.

Meet Raven Feagins

Role: Content Writer & Administrative Assistant

Time at Fuzzy Math: 7 months

Fuzzy Math Spotlight: Bert, Alfreda & Raven - Raven's desk

Q: Where are you from originally?

A: I’m always the worst person to get this question since I don’t have a clear-cut answer. I grew up in a military family so I moved almost every three years of my life. But! The most interesting place I lived in was Germany from ages 7 to 10. Otherwise, I’ve been in Chicago for 9 years so Chicago is my home now!

Q: What’s playing in your headphones at work? 

A: So many things! Lately, I’ve been listening to Amine’s newest album, Limbo, on repeat, but if I’m just looking for something a little more chill I’ll listen to anything by Thundercat, Tame Impala, or my “Energetic Classical” playlist if I need something to help me stay hyper-focused while I’m writing. 

Q: What was your first job ever?

A: When I moved to Chicago, the first job I had was working at a souvenir shop at Navy Pier during the Summer. 

Q: What was the last book you read?

A: All About Love by bell hooks. 

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

A: Usually, it’s my dog, Rose, tip-tapping her way into the bedroom and staring at me to get up and feed her.
