Aug 13, 2017 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.
