He is good at picking out flaws in technique, but he is also skilled at noticing synergy and developing effective solutions to creative and technology-related challenges. As the company’s Operations Assistant, Caleb strives to provide competent and punctual support for procedures and employees that require his skills.
Caleb was four years old when he started reading chapter books, and he was ten when he sat down at a dusty Dell Pentium 3000 to try writing something of his own. He would spend hours jotting in notebooks, coming up with details and trying to understand why they fit in his stories. He’s been using Microsoft word to write essays and fiction for more than half of his life, which came in useful when he went to college and ended up helping some friends edit their essays, lending a critical eye to their words and their ideas. In his work at MANIFEST Technology, he brings that same eye for detail and creative zeal to each project he works on.
During his time at UW-Madison, Caleb cultivated his interest in communication and his familiarity with information technologies. While he self-identifies as a communication amateur (from the Latin “amare”, meaning “to love”), he learns quickly and competently when introduced to new systems and software. Foundational skills form his childhood, the refinement of extensive experience, and a guiding desire to discover and learn have resulted in a sharp, technical mind that’s excellent at semantics and analyzing data. He thrives in spaces where there is always something to do and new things to learn that pique his interest.
These days, he spends his free time writing, reading, going on runs, and occasionally playing board games with his friends. He dabbles in poetry, novice-level Japanese, and dragon-training when he can fit it into his schedule.
You can’t give her that!” she screamed. “It’s not safe!”
“IT’S A SWORD,” said the Hogfather. “THEY’RE NOT MEANT TO BE SAFE.”
“She’s a child!” shouted Crumley.
“What if she cuts herself?”
“THAT WILL BE AN IMPORTANT LESSON.”
―Sir Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
