We are pleased to welcome Calum McGrath to the eOne team. Calum is an Integration Consultant on our Popdock team and will be working out of our office in Austin, TX. No doubt you’ll interact with him in the coming months, but in the meantime – take a few moments to get to know him a little bit more.
Q: Do you have any fun projects that you’ve worked on before coming to eOne?
A: Back in college, I helped my roommate with his final year project which he did for an entertainment and gambling company. He had to create a simulation model that accurately predicted the probability of a golfer achieving an exact world ranking by a certain date. As a big golf fan, I found it very interesting, and I spent a lot of time trying to help him out with it.
Q: What are you passionate about outside of work?
A: I’m big into sports. I love watching Rugby, Soccer, Football, Basketball, and Golf. I’m from Ireland where we have our own local sports, Hurling and Gaelic football, and I try to keep up with them as well. I also play a bit of casual Golf, Soccer, and Rugby whenever I can.
Q: What’s on your bucket list?
A: I like to travel and have traveled a lot around Europe and North America. I think next on my bucket list is to travel around Asia. Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia are all high on my list.
Q: Any fun(ny) eOne memories that first come to mind?
A: I am still pretty new here but have really enjoyed meeting the Austin team!
Q: What’s playing in your headphones?
A: I’m not too picky with music, I’ve been listening to a lot of The Artic Monkeys, The Kooks, and Paolo Nutini over the last couple of weeks. I have been trying to listen to some country music since moving to Texas.
Q: What TV show are you binge-watching/watched most recently?
A: I am terrible at keeping up with TV shows. I end up just rewatching the same sitcoms over and over again. Usually, the Office or Frasier. Much more of a movie guy. I recently watched The Banshees of Inisherin which was brilliant. I’d recommend any of Martin McDonagh’s movies.
