Q.What do you do at OneSpace?

I’m a Solutions Engineer, which means I customize our products to meet individual client’s needs and help out with developing new features to make the platform easier to use.

Q.What is your favorite OneSpace Value?

“Be approachable,” because the team at OneSpace is very welcoming. From my first day here, I’ve never felt like the “new guy.”

Q.If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you bring?

1. A loaded Kindle
2. My guitar
3. A keg of sugar-free Red Bull

Cory is going to the Winter Classic... and we are all jealous!

 Q.What makes you geek out?

A lot of things: space, technology, the St. Louis Blues…but music probably makes me geek out harder than anything else.

Q.Are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?

I can be both, depending on the situation. I’m comfortable following someone else’s lead but also willing to take a leadership role.

Q.Who would win in a fight between Spiderman and Batman?

Definitely Batman. No one should take Spiderman seriously since he went through an emo phase in Spiderman 3.

Q.What do you want your legacy to be?

I want to be known for being confident in anything that I take on, whether it’s personal or professional. I want people to think,“Oh I don’t have to worry about that; Cory’s involved and he’s got it!”

Q.What is your favorite movie genre?

I am definitely a comedy guy, but during Halloween, I love a good horror movie.

Q.What was your first CD?

I’m pretty sure it was a free CD from McDonald’s, but my first deliberate purchase was “Razorblade Suitcase” by Bush.

Q. What are your favorite charities or causes?

Probably anything involving kids. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital comes to mind because kids facing life-threatening diseases and cancer is a horrible situation for everyone involved. I’m also a big fan of micro-lending sites like Kiva.org, where you can help people achieve their goals and then lend to someone else when it’s paid back.

Q.Do you have any hidden talents?

I can count cards. (Don’t tell the casino!)
