This week at VersionOne we had the opportunity to celebrate our CTO Ian Culling for having a birthday. He won’t tell us how old he is, so I guess that means he’s over 20? If you get the chance to meet him you might think he’s in his 20’s!
The man is a big part of the culture here at VersionOne. He makes things fun in addition to being smart as hell and doing a bang up job as the CTO. Walk into the development area and you are sure to find traces of Ian’s shenanigans, Dumb & Dumber orange suit, a plethora of nerf guns, Oculus rift, OneWheel, and more recently a Razor drift cart.
He’s also known for showing up at events in “special” attire. It’s a thing we that we’ve come to expect from him, but there’s always an element of surprise to it. So in honor of his birthday, we thought we would egg him on for an upcoming golf event that we have going on.
Below is the email that went out from Holly Reynolds, an interaction designer on the product development team.
In case you didn’t know…. it’s Ian’s birthday today…
We all know how much Ian loves to dress up and as much as he probably would like to come to work in his actual birthday suit, clothing is not optional here at VersionOne.
Stars pass and we honor them by celebrating their life after they are gone, but that seems like such a waste. Ian’s not dead, but he is getting older. Each of these remind me of him in a special way. I’m pretty sure if you pick your favorite, we just might get to see this guy show up at the upcoming golf outing on May 16th (don’t forget to sign up…you’re welcome Michelle).
Reply to me with your vote by 5 pm today or add your own suggestion for the birthday guy if you please.
The results will be compiled and shared later.
