staff_karlMeet Karl Knief, the Database Administrator in our Santa Monica office. What would surprise us about your work?

The intricacy of handling the data and all the steps it can take to get the proper conclusion.

Who is your hero?

Satoshi Kon, the animation writer and director who created films and TV shows without any cliches or stereotypes.

What has been your greatest success at work?

Giving order to the database.

What about a failure or challenge?

Entering tens of thousands of names and determining whether they're new constituents or already in the system.

Favorite green book?

"The Lorax" was the first book that ever made me think about the environment.

Favorite green movie?

"Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind." The story deals with how unexamined belief systems regarding the world can allow people to keep damaging the world around them.

Favorite way to spend a free day?

Good long walk or skating along the beach.

If you had the power to make one global and green change, what would it be?

Free the younger generation of the self-centered brainwashing they inevitably learn that makes them believe their every need comes before the health of the planet.
