Seven Questions: Dave Wollenhaup
We are pleased to resume our series of 7 Questions, in which we interview transcribers and coordinators who are part of the TypeWell community.
What did you study in college, or what were your favorite subjects in school?
Computer Engineering. My favorite subjects were math and physics.
How many languages do you speak and what are they?
Three languages. English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
What do you believe are the most important skills or traits for a TypeWell transcriber to have?
Integrity, dependability, and being respectful.
What's the weirdest thing we might find on your desk or in your roller bag?
I have a USB charger that is a Protoss pylon from the video game StarCraft. It glows blue when it is being used.
If you could change anything about your work, what would it be?
I would love for all the work to be remote and very little onsite work.
How and at what age did you learn to type?
I learned to type on a typewriter when I was 14 in high school. The teacher used to make us put poker chips on our wrists to maintain good posture and if they fell off she would deduct points from our assignments.
What is one misconception people have about you?
People think I am a body guard or unapproachable, I believe some of it stems from my beard LOL.
Thanks, Dave! We hope to meet you and your colleagues at the TECHWell Conference in Reno, NV in June!
