Q1. What is your earliest memory of working for Telescope?

So many funny ones from the early days. We laughed a lot.  One that stands out is when the operations team heard that I had never seen ‘The Neverending Story’ …they were so shocked and put an immediate movie night in the books. They kept talking about some puppy dragon named Falkor. Also, I almost cut off my thumb with a bagel knife in the office kitchen that landed me in the ER getting it glued back together. That one was not funny though.
