A world traveler (25 countries and counting) with a penchant for licorice and Legos — as a kid, he built a sewing machine with a removable bobbin out of the tiny blocks — web developer Stan Grabowski also enjoys sketching out visual puns and honing his marksmanship skills when he gets the chance.
Picking a fight with all the English majors in the office, he believes “The Great Gatsby” is a waste of ink and is obsessed with the now-mothballed US Space Shuttle program. Enjoying “breaking things on purpose and then putting them back together,” he tinkers (sometimes successfully) with old cars and old computers.
Much to his clients’ and colleagues’ delight, the patient and pleasant Mr. Grabowski deplores technical jargon when talking websites, focusing instead on ensuring that users find what they need on the sites he builds. A gifted graphic designer, he enjoys camping and hiking in the mountains with his wife and would really like everybody to PLEASE turn on their headlights in bad weather. Safety first.
