Hemingway, or Hemi as he is known in the office, is overly cautious but that is what makes him a good risk manager. He is ready to see danger at every turn and won’t hesitate to offer his opinion. But once he evaluates the situation and determines the reward outweighs the peril, he is all in for pets, cuddles, and the occasional tasty snack.
At times it might seem he has a lack of focus on singular tasks but his multi-tasking skills allow him to spend time on a multitude of projects. Hemingway has an MBA, Master of Bone Assessment, from the prestigious Milkbone University. He lives with his mom and dad and is about to get a baby brother.
