This week we're getting to know a guy who knows how to bring the funny. Say hi to Andy!
What's your name?
What does your screen name mean and why did you choose it?
My ego hardy fits on the internet, so clearly, my only choice is my magnificent last name.
What kind of job do you have?
I work for the bike shop behind bike shops, Quality Bicycle Products. In addition to serving a basic customer service role, I also work in the International department, where I am responsible for our Canadian accounts, and have a sales role when dealing with them. Before QBP, I worked at REI in Roseville MN, and ran the ski and bike shop. Before that, I was in the Coast Guard and wound up getting stationed in Alaska, and worked as an engineer in an engine room.
Tell us an interesting/funny story about yourself.
I'll have to tell you in person. There are a few good ones, but the filth and depravity are overwhelming to the tubes.

How did you first hear about Eurowerks?
I heard about it through urotrash, joined, and stuck around on EW because people actually post here!
If you could make a change to Eurowerks, what would it be and why?
It's all good, actually! I'm impressed at how well it's maintained and upgraded.
