Meet The Team: Misty Michael

Written by Karl Binder on June 6, 2016


Next under the microscope for our meet the team series of posts is Misty Michael, who only recently joined stickee as a Product Owner, find out more about her here…

stickee: How did you end up working for stickee? Tell us how you got here (can you tell us a bit about your background, your last job, perhaps your degree)?

MM: I have a degree in English Literature, but after accepting a job with a web company, I ended up working in E-commerce. At my last job, I co-ordinated the building of a few websites that sold women’s accessories, as well as looking after their digital marketing, which I really enjoyed. I decided it was time for a new challenge, and luckily this turned out to be just what I was looking for.

stickee: Can we get you a tea or coffee? How many sugars?

MM: Neither! I gave up caffeine a year ago on a whim, so just water or the occasional juice now. I was primarily a coffee drinker before though – white with 1 sugar. And one must always add the milk first!

stickee: What were your first impressions of stickee?

MM: Everyone is amazing here! It’s an incredibly positive environment, everyone is really friendly and welcoming. I honestly couldn’t say a bad thing about anyone or anything I’ve experienced so far.

stickee: Who would play you in a movie of your life?

MM: Probably Melissa McCarthy if she could pull off the accent.

stickee: If you have a life outside of stickee, what do you get up to?

MM: My hobby is having hobbies. I’m a knitter, sewer, photography nut, nail art fanatic and all around general crafter. Most of the time outside of work I’m either making something, or planning my next project. I’m currently working on a cardigan that’s knit entirely in sock weight yarn which is very thin and will probably take approximately 1000 years to finish.

stickee: It’s lunchtime, someone offers to get you whatever takeaway you desire, what do you go for?

MM: Sushi with extra wasabi! Alternatively, if they’re willing to go a long way for it, Taco Bell.

stickee: What’s your favourite book, film and album?Misty

MM: I can never pick favourites, they’re always changing. It’s much easier for me to pick genres. For reading, I prefer post-apocolyptic dystopia. I’m an absolute horror film buff, I could watch only scary movies and be happy. My music tastes are much more eclectic. I like classical, hip-hop, rock and folk music from the 60s and 70s.

stickee: What’s the best holiday you’ve ever been on?

MM: So far it’s probably Lanzarote. I spent a very blissful two weeks swimming every day in the ocean, doing some sight-seeing, and eating chicken cooked over the top of a volcano. My favourite part though was when I tried chocolate tequila for the first time. IT. WAS. AMAZING.

Thanks Misty – we’ll let you get back to your work!
