Previously in our Traklight Trakers Series, we introduced you to Chris Platt. Today's feature is Erik.
When we interviewed Erik for this internship position, we did a little research to review his social media posting skills (as an intern with Traklight, you must possess an understanding of social media so that you can write social media posts for various platforms as required). Obviously, we liked what we saw. But after many Batman posts, we dubbed him, "Batman." Oh, and did we mention that he has a SWEET Batman sticker for his MacBook Pro?
Emily: What did you learn about intellectual property (IP) before starting at Traklight?
Erik: I really didn’t know anything about IP at all. It was a chapter we went over in my Business Law class that I never went to.
Emily: Something about you that would be a surprise to learn?
Erik: I am a very outdoorsy person—shocking, I know. Since summers are so short in Alaska (where I grew up), I try to spend as much time outside as possible. I was only home one weekend out of the whole summer other than that one I was camping, fishing, and hiking around Alaska.
Emily: Any deep dark secrets that are past statute of limitations?
Erik: Nothing illegal, but maybe a little embarrassing. I have a slight obsession with comic books and saw the latest Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, three times the first week it came out.
Emily: If you were alone in the car by yourself, what song would you sing and why?
Erik: I would have to admit it would be Taylor Swift’s new song, "Shake It Off." It is just so catchy you can’t help but sing along.
