We’re excited to welcome you to the UpKeep family, Clarence! Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a Los Angeles native. I like to call myself an “LA guy”. I’m a die hard Lakers & Dodgers fan. I graduated from San Jose State with a degree in economics. I’ve also lived in San Diego for about 2 years.

How did you first get into Sales?

I was working in retail and a college friend told me about a “cool startup” that was hiring. I came in for an interview and haven’t looked back since.

Why are you excited to join UpKeep?

I am excited to join UpKeep for several reasons. I love the company mission. I also have experience working in the work management space, and have an understanding of how companies can find value in UpKeep.

What are your first thoughts about the culture and team so far?

The team culture is awesome. Everyone has been amazing and made themselves available if I need any assistance.

We have to know – what is your favorite of the sports you’ve played (basketball, football, and track and field)? If you could coach any of the three, which would it be and why?

If I could coach any sport between basketball, football, and track it would be basketball because that is the sport that I am most knowledgeable about. The opportunity to coach young kids and see them grow in their athletic and personal lives would be a fulfilling experience.

And finally, most importantly, what would you be if you were a kitchen utensil?

I would be a knife because I’m sharp 🙂
