Drew McQuarrie
Web Developer
The Basics:

What is your name/nicknames?
I’ve heard it all. Drew is most common, but I’ve gotten Drewberry, Drewcifer, Drewski, and even Drewnald from one nerd. Oh! Also the sound when someone clears their throat really grossly. I so wish I was kidding about that last one. Stupid Scott.

How would you describe your position?
Comfortable. This chair is very nice, thank you. Oh! You mean…well I take things creative people conjure and make them functional. If these were cars I’d be building the engine. Or if they were unicorns I’d be making the rainbows.

What are your academic credentials?
Most of my skillz are self-taught. That’s not to say my Earth and Atmospheric Sciences degree hasn’t come in handy in this profession. I mean, just then I got to use it to answer a question!

What do you do in your spare time?
I game. I’m a gamer. Maybe even the gamest. I used to play in a band, now I write music digitally, mostly just for myself. I’m the karaoke baron. I also like camping. Banff is so high definition it’s cuh-RA-zy!

Who or what inspires you and why?
Anyone who can go outside their comfort zone. It’s so easy to stick to what you’re at ease with. That freaks me out and I’m always amazed when someone does it effortlessly. Also pangolins. Those guys are awesome.

The Random:

What does your name mean?
Actually it means “The Artist Formerly Known as Draw”. No really.

What do you think the world would be like if bacon didn’t exist?
*weeps inconsolably* WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?!

What is the best TV show ever created?
M*A*S*H *mic drop*

What was your first car?
It was a moped. Bright red, 50CC moped. My stupid friend Todd was a big rigger who had a 49.9CC so he got to drive his before he was 16. I was so Jealous (notice the capital J). I used to go everywhere on that thing. Even got a mount for our motorhome so we could take it to our cabin in the Maritimes. Used to make runs to the corner store a few miles away on it. Remember pulling a wheelie on it and the throttle cable snapping. It was awesome!

What five things are always in your fridge?
I feel I need some context for this. Like what things are in my fridge because I like them so much, or because I forget about them so much? Likes: Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I put that **** on everything! Also, a variety of mustards and some dijon ketchup and pre-wrapped bacon. *starts crying again thinking about question #2*. Forgets: I have almost permanent cucumber slime. I really like cucumber, but I usually get about half to two thirds through and then forget. I’ll be sitting on the couch and all of a sudden it’ll hit me; cucumber. Open the produce drawer and it’s like there’s a fifth element (which is also the answer to one of my top three movies) but it’s less Jovovichy and more “ectoplasmic smoothy created in the bowels of hell”. And not in the good way.
