Q&A with Fez

What’s the common thread that runs through your career?

I am always keen to apply my creativity. Throughout high school, I directed short films, documentaries, and music videos that allowed me to bring nuanced characters and stories to life. In college, I organized unique activities and initiatives that drew participation from students across campus: an interview-style comedy show, a 900-person game of ‘spoon assassin’, and even a personal matchmaking service.

What’s one of your superpowers?

Creating meaningful connections with people of different backgrounds, passions, and interests.

A book you commonly gift to people?

That Will Never Work by Marc Randolph

In your spare time?

I enjoy reading books about startups, meeting new people, and going for walks with friends!
