There's an employee at Trilix you've probably never met. Peter Rincker is the agency’s lead web developer, and he works nearly 2,000 miles away from the office. He left Iowa for Oregon with his wife six years ago, but he’s so valuable to the Trilix team that we didn’t let him off the payroll. Working remotely from the West Coast, Peter is celebrating his tenth year at Trilix this week. So, we decided to ask him a few questions (and received a few, more creative “alternative” questions and answers in return).
What’s one thing that’s changed about you in the last 10 years?
I have lost my hair. ☹ But gained a beard.
What’s one thing that’s stayed the same?
I still celebrate Pi day (March 14th).

Favorite part about working at Trilix over the course of your tenure?
Have I mentioned Pi day? I’m joking (a little). I enjoy working with wonderful people at Trilix, and I love making great websites.
What is your secret to cooking the perfect egg?
Use a non-stick pan, oil, eggs, a little bit of water — then cover. No silly flipping and they come out perfect.
What do you think about the upcoming Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi?
I am stoked to go see it, but I am avoiding any spoiler or fan theories. I want to go in with child-like wonder.
What’s your favorite minor holiday?
Garr…it be September 19, International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
What kind of music do you listen to at work?
A playlist that favors a lot of electro swing.
Caravan Palace — Clash
I’ve never seen you at work? Are you a real person or just an email bot that has gained consciousness?
This question makes me feel uncomfortable. Ctrl+Alt+Del
If you had a time machine and could go back and see any event in history, where would you go?
I think it would be amazing to see the moon landing.
What do you think the word “Trilix” means?
I think it is approximately the sound you get when you say “T-Rex” while holding your tongue.
What advice do you want to give others?
Don’t look into the eyes of the Girl Scouts selling cookies outside your grocery store. You already have a dozen boxes at home, and you don’t need anymore!
