Get To Know 900lbs: Steven Engel Craven

What do you do at 900lbs?

Eat lots of snacks. But my job title is 3D Artist!

What do you do for fun?

Eat lots of snacks. I also like hiking, old school PC games, sci-fi movies and spending time with (and eating snacks with) my friends.

If you didn’t grow up in Dallas, where?

I’m a Dallas boy, born and raised.

Favorite music?

I like an odd and eclectic mix of stuff. I really like rock, blues and folk (think Black Keys, White Stripes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, or anything else with a monochromatic name), but I also like the occasional Irish folk tune or reggae song.

Where do you hang out in your free time?

Bookstores and the out-of-doors. Or home. I’m a bit of an introvert.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Iceland! Or the Pacific Northwest. Or Patagonia. Basically, anywhere foggy, cold and wild.

What is your favorite 900lbs project so far?

So far, my favorite has been for Amazon Web Services. We created a simple environment in the Sumerian Engine, which was completely new to me. And I love learning new things. 🙂
