Name?

Emma Bobola

Is this your real name? Or do you have another super-secret name? Are you like a super hero or something?

That’s the part of my name that I use, no secret names for me. My uncle called me FlufferNutter as a kid though, like the sandwich.

I am like a something. Mobey might think I’m a super hero though, because I have treats.

Where did you grow up?

Kirkland, just over on the Eastside.

Do you prefer the Forest or the Ocean? Why?

I like them both quite a lot but I’d say I prefer forests. I love seeing tiny little sprouts of life taking shelter under ancient trees. I feel inspired to live happier and more graciously when I spend time in forests.

What was the first beer that made you go: “Oh damn.”

Probably my first sour beer. I really love sours. Recently I had a sour rose that was sooo good.

How long have you worked for PB?

About 5 months.

What do you do at PB?

I’m a Software Engineer. I write code and live in my headphones when I’m busy.

What do you love most about PB?

The people. I love working with people I can learn from. And that I can take Mobey to work with me. Having dogs in the office is great, I love seeing Mobey make friends.

Hobbies?

When the weather is good I hike, especially mountain hikes that end at lakes. I watch Jeopardy every day. And I read a lot. I love creepy stories, most recently Lovecraft’s short stories, and sci-fi/fantasy. I’m working my way through the Game of Thrones books (again) in hopes that the next book will come out soon.

Allergies?

Seasonal. Every season.

Pets?

Mobey ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Funniest story you’ve heard in the last 12 months?

The only one that comes to mind is my boyfriend told me that he taught his little cousins a game called “Dead Fish.” It’s basically the quiet game but you have to lay on the ground and not move too. They totally fell for it.
