Meet Tim Plummer, the latest addition to the Seafoam Media team. As our newest Developer, Tim brings extensive experience in web development and WordPress site development. Here’s a little bit about Tim:
If you could have any super power what would it be?
But there’s a catch, isn’t there? The Super Hero doesn’t typically choose their powers. They are bestowed upon them by some instance of fate or freak accident. Super Villains are only ever the ones to choose their powers. And while I think I would be a very malevolent mastermind, I don’t believe my grandmother would approve. So if I were to be bestowed with such power, I would hope it to be telekinesis.
What are you most passionate about professionally?
I love solving puzzles. It’s what drives me as a developer. Whether it involves troubleshooting a glitch in a 10-year-old system or building a plugin from scratch; the bigger the challenge the more rewarding I find my work.
What apps, software or tools can’t you live without?
Hokey standards and ancient software are no replacement for a good text editor at your side. Komodo edit is my weapon of choice along with a relatively unknown FTP (file transfer protocol) program called Fling which syncs data between local folders and FTP server automatically. I like my fingers too. They’re pretty important. I’ve tried typing with my toes before. Challenging but not necessarily productive.
What do you like to do on your free time?
I’m an avid board gamer. Video games and cool and all, but there’s just something about table top and board gaming that makes it more interesting. The rules aren’t set in stone and are subjective to interpretation. The smell and feel of the board and game pieces. The sound of the dice hitting the table and the anticipation of waiting to discover how chance has determined your fate. The strategy involved in contemplating your moves 5 turns ahead, trying to outwit everyone else at the table. It gets your brain working in ways you can’t accomplish with other hobbies.
What do you like most about working remotely?
Working remotely gives me the opportunity to expand what I do into other walks of life that I may not have in other scenarios. So much of what we do requires an open mind and getting to understand our client’s business and needs. What better way to do that than to be out in the world soaking in experiences while I’m building and designing new websites or marketing strategies?
What does your workspace look like?
Yeah…gonna need to clear off my desk.
Update: three days later, desk is cleaned.
