How long have you worked for KR?: 4/2011-10/2014 and 6/2015-Present So a total of 5.5 years
One thing on your bucket list (give a why) Want to see my kids grow up and be successful.
One of your favorite KR products or the first one you owned? My favorite product is the 20” JRYU Patina Dunny
Roses are red, violets are blue…….. vodka costs less than dinner for 2.
What about Kidrobot or art culture is your favorite? Friendships that have been created.
It’s not always easy to look damn good everyday..but somehow this lady does it. Not only does Heather show up to KR to kick ass but she is one of those people who can make a whole room laugh just by laughing. Her contagious laughter and positive attitude (even when she is dealing with some annoying concepts or timelines) keeps the mood up and the rest of the development team as cool as they are. Not only are we super happy to see Heather but she is also the perfect addition to every KR event we dream up. We also think it’s important to mention that outside of the Kidrobot office she is a BA mom who makes sure that her family comes first. You know when you were in high school and there was always that really cool parent you wish your mom and dad would be like? The one that didn’t give too many restrictions and was able to somehow be hilarious and still an “adult figure” well, Heather is that plus some and we are more than happy to see her show up everyday with a smile on her perfectly done up face.
