The software is so feature rich and our customers are so engaging, there has rarely been a moment in almost two decades where I was not honored with the opportunity to write an uplifting blog or explain a feature in positive, confident prose. Work is a joy.

I started with Escape because of the people – people I could trust. Those few people grew in number, some came and went, but collectively never lost that attribute – trust. It’s the people.

Customer relationships, constant learning and growth, challenging puzzles that take lots of brainpower to solve, teammates who help you find the missing pieces, satisfaction that comes from solving the puzzle, and people who are there to celebrate with you.

I love my co-workers. Our team is a work family. Everyone jumps in when there is a crisis and helps... Plus, having the ability to shoot someone in the office with a nerf gun occasionally is fun and relieves some stress.

Things I love about working at Escape? Smart, friendly hardworking people, Nerf gun fights and my increased bank balance twice a month. Lol.
