#whysocial spotlight: Eric Wicks

Digital Designer Eric Wicks sat down with us to talk about his favorite Austin spots, what attracted him to the Spredfast family, and why he stays social.

What attracted you to Spredfast and what do you enjoy most about your position?

The opportunity to work with a startup focused on pushing the capabilities of social media. I love being able to collaborate with such a rich mix of talented people.


What personal projects inspire you? What are your passions outside the office?

At the moment, I’m learning French. Learning a new language really interests me as a means to explore differences in global thinking and culture. Rock climbing, cycling and riding motorcycles are also on the list.


My favorite spot in Austin is: ___________________. 

Justine’s, great place to hang out with friends and grab dinner or just wine and a cheese plate. Also, I can’t see this question without at least mentioning Casa De Luz and Barton Springs. No, all of Austin is pretty great.



If I had to define my #whysocial, it would be...

Connection. That, and the study of sociology really interests me.  


Questions for Eric? Holler at him on Twitter. Thanks for joining our team, Eric! We wouldn't be the same without you.
