Despite Don doing his homework beforehand, we were still able to surprise him with some fun questions in the latest PiAchiever video. From forbidden fruit to Black Labs and coffee – we cover it all with this Marketo master. Watch the video above and don’t forget to stay for the outtakes!
Digital Pi: Today on PiAchievers, we have Don Le. He’s going to talk about marketing operations at Ruckus. You ready? Do you know the format?
Don: I’m ready, rock and roll. I saw some videos. I cheated a little bit.
Digital Pi: He cheated! First one, what is your least favorite food?
Don: I love all kinds of food. However, durian is my Achilles’ heel. Durian, the fruit spikes.
Digital Pi: You guys know what that is?
Don: There’s a reason why they’re spikes on there, not meant to be eaten.
Digital Pi: All right, stay away. Don, next question. Who’s the dog in the Ruckus logo?
Don: I don’t know who the dog is in the Ruckus logo. Its black lab and I just kind of adopted it- that’s all I got!
Digital Pi: It’s a pretty cool dog, and now he’s everywhere! Next question. We talked about what you don’t like to eat but what’s the weirdest thing that you have eaten?
Don: The weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten is, I forget the official term of it, but it’s weasel bean coffee. Have you heard of that?
Digital Pi: Nope, that is weird. Next question: You have a great job now running operations at Ruckus but, if you could do another job for a day, what would that be?
Don: An executive chef at a Michelin restaurant.
Digital Pi: I like that, what are you going to cook?
Don: Oh my gosh, I’m kind of grungy. I’m in this stew phase right now, my favorite dish for the winter season is a pork, fennel, butternut squash stew
Digital Pi: Best vacation that you have ever been on?
Don: My mother country is Vietnam. I love just learning about the history of my people, the food, the culture, and I travelled with over 15 relatives, aunts, uncles and cousins and we just had a great time there.
Digital Pi: That’s amazing! What’s your secret talent or something that people don’t know about you?
Don: It’s a guilty pleasure here, but I consider myself a video gamer. I love just playing video games all day long and first person shooters, but at this day and age, I just kind of keep it in the closet.
Digital Pi: We got time for one more. What is the coolest thing about living in the Bay Area?
Don: Living in the Bay Area is the sun; you got to have the beaches, the wine country, the city. Everything’s within a 20 to 30 mile radius quite frankly.
Digital Pi: Thanks so much for joining on this version of PiAchievers and we’ll see you on the next edition.
