Tomorrow marks my 10 year anniversary with Klipsch. As I think back over those 10 years and about how much my life has changed, I find comfort knowing this place has remained my constant. In that I'm constantly telling people how to pronounce Clip-shh.
So in honor of this remarkable day, I'd like to share some of my favorite memories of the last 10 years of drawing a paycheck from the greatest speaker company in the world:
Answering the want ad in the Indy Star classifieds that merely said "Tech Support Help" along with a fax number. I still can't believe I trusted such a cheesy and non-informative ad.
Attending my first employee appreciation luncheon when we could still all fit at a large table in a reasonably sized restaurant.
The days Steven has had to come to work with me, for one crisis-reason or another.
The first time I was locked inside the anechoic chamber.
My one and only trip to Hope, Arkansas. We arrived Tuesday, November 7, 2000, and I went to sleep in the hotel that night thinking we had elected one president and waking up to find out it was really the other. Then later, it was the other. Then I lost track. Oh, and the awesome chicken salad sandwich I had in that one deli. Mmm.
My one and only visit to Los Angeles for the E3 gaming conference. Those people are crazy.
Moving to our new headquarters a few months after my hire date. I felt like The Jeffersons.
Joining the marketing department in 2005. I love these guys.
The friends I've made.
The first time Steven pointed out Klipsch speakers in a public place all by himself. Proud moment indeed.
