Meet the Team: A Q&A with Manager, Nick Webb.
A true introvert, our Cloud CFO manager Nick feels energized after some solitude, listening to music. But it may not be the music you might expect…
Favorite productivity hack?
Nick Webb (NW): My kid has to be out the door for school by 7:00, so I can start working very early. I can get a ton of work done in the 2-3 hours before my clients start their day.
If you could only have three apps on your smartphone, which would you pick?
NW: My banking app, a news app (probably NPR) and an authenticator app so I can log in to all of my 2-factor sites.
Morning person or night owl?
NW: Night owl. Even though I have to be up early, I still stay up late and would prefer to sleep later.
NW: Jonathan Lethem’s “Fortress of Solitude”
What energizes you/brings you excitement?
NW: Being alone. Either in the quiet, or with music.
NW: I wouldn’t say I have a favorite, but have found that there are two bands that I will never skip no matter which song plays; Tool and Sigur Ros.
Do you have any pets?
NW: A cat.
What’s one item you can’t leave home without?
NW: Pants. But seriously, I do leave my house with only the clothes on my back sometimes, just to walk and not be bothered.
Which season is your favorite?
NW: The ones without 95-100% humidity.
What’s your most-used emoji?
NW: Smiley Face. 😊
What did you wish for last, like at your birthday or when throwing a coin into a fountain?’
NW: Nice try. Everybody knows wishes don’t come true if you tell someone.
If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?
NW: Theoretical physics.
What qualities do you value in the people with whom you spend time?
If you could tell your former self one thing right now what would it be?
NW: This too shall pass.
Truth: What was your go-to work from home outfit?
NW: Jeans in the cooler months, linen pants in the summer. T-shirt unless I have a meeting, then grab a linen or oxford button up.
