LooptyHoops News, Tips, and Style Guide

  • Meet Our Staff: Darren Roberts

    What do you do here at LooptyHoops?

    I'm in the shipping department, and I handle newsletters and a few other odds and ends. Also, being the oldest member of the staff, I bring much-needed demographic balance to the office.

    What’s your favorite part of the job?

    I love the opportunities to be creative, whether it's in newsletters, blogs, or elsewhere. In my other job, I'm a fake patient for medical students to diagnose, and I spend all day in a hospital gown saying the same things over and over and over.  So it's very gratifying to have a creative outlet here. And keep my clothes on. Well, so far...

    Where are you from originally?

    I'm from Southern California. I grew up around Knott's Berry Farm and as an adult lived in Hollywood.  I moved to the East Coast about twelve years ago, and Philadelphia about three.

    Do you have any pets?

    I have a bluetick coonhound named Daisy Mae. She is, literally, the Best! Dog! In the World! She is a very good girl. 

    What's something most people don't know about you?

    I once called in to a radio station to request a song and won $5,000. Thanks, Madonna!

    Favorite movie?

    Empire Strikes Back, of course.

    What’s your favorite LooptyHoops earring?

    Well, I don't wear earrings anymore, but when I did they were always hoops.  Butch, manly hoops.
