STAFF FOCUS: Tim DeCoste, Interactives Workshop Manager
Q: Name? A: Tim DeCoste but they call me moose now there’s four Tims.
Q: What and where did you study? A: Seaquam secondary school in my motherland of Canada. University didn’t seem challenging enough so I went to major in waterparks abroad.
Q: How long have you worked at Paragon Creative? A: 3 years this month.
Q: What development / training have you undertaken since joining the team? A: IOSH managing safely and the ever-important manual handling and fire warden training. And of course the sage mentoring of Jon Myers (Operations Director) and Chris Nuttall (Technical Director).
Q: Favourite Project to work on and why? A: Dig It Dubai Springs. It was an achievable project that has resulted in a great success which is always a boost knowing the work our department put in to it, I’m sure others did OK as well. I also got to be involved in the installation, something I don’t often get to be a part of, luckily I still have my old work boots so I almost blended in seamlessly if not for my eloquent speaking and perfect hair.
Q: What do you like about working at Paragon? A: Everyday poses a new challenge. It’s also close to home so that’s nice.
Q: Dream project to work on? A: If we could do something ice hockey or maple syrup based I’d be very much in my comfort zone.
