How did you get this job?
I had a sales internship over the summer with Campus Specials and Chegg, you know, like the coupon books? I sold advertising for them on Franklin Street. I went and talked to Bret (the owner of Sup Dogs), and he offered me a job. He said, “We need a dancing hot dog, we open in four days.” I was like, I don’t know, that sounds cool. I went home and I thought about it, and I realized it sounds amazing. So I came back and said, "I’ll do it."
What is your dream job?
I’ll end up being a financial representative at Salesforce in San Francisco. I was out there this summer and I got to talk to some people in that position. It sounds cool, I want to travel a lot.
