We Asked Jamie

What do you do at Kicksite?

I’m a software developer at Kicksite. As a relative newcomer, I’ve worked more on the uplifted parts of Kicksite than classic features. If you are a Kicksite user and opted into some of our beta features you have definitely used code that I’ve written. I work on both front-end features and back-end features but during my time at Kicksite I’ve contributed more to front-end features.

What is the best meal you have ever had?

I’m not necessarily a vegetarian or super-strict about wellness & health food.  However, in 2019 I read a book called “Hippie Food” that detailed the history of one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in Seattle called the Sunlight Café. Later that year I got to visit it on a vacation to the Pacific Northwest. The Vegan Highlander, an item on their breakfast menu, has two kinds of soy protein: tofu and tempeh. It is amazing.

What is your secret talent no one knows about?

I have an anonymous SoundCloud account that has music I’ve written and played on it, but I would never tell anyone about it. I’ve played guitar since I was a teenager, but I’ve never really tried to develop bass guitar technique until recently.

What is your favorite quote?

“Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.”
― The Art of Peace, Morihei Ueshiba (founder of the martial art of Aikido)
