QUESTION: WHAT'S YOUR IDEAL MIDDAY SNACK?

David: Ooh, I usually go Pineapple Coconut Bar or Sriracha Roasted Cashews.

QUESTION: WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO 30-MINUTE DINNER RECIPE?

David: Let's see...definitely salmon. I eat a lot of salmon. Usually some kind of salmon dish either with rice, brussel sprouts, or green beans. 

QUESTION: TELL US ABOUT THE BEST OFFICE PRANK YOU'VE PULLED.

David: I gotta think way back...there used to be a lot of pranks pulled back in the early days. I remember once we took someone's bike. There were a bunch of pallets when we were working in the warehouse and we took his chair and bike and put it on top of the pallets.

WHAT WAS HIS REACTION?

David: It was really funny to watch him as he looked around trying to figure out what happened. He was so confused! He was looking for his chair and asking around and someone finally pointed at the pallets and he had to climb up the stack of pallets to get his stuff down.

QUESTION: IF YOU HAD TO PICK ONE SNACK TO SURVIVE OFF OF FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

David: Probably the Big Island Pineapple - can't go wrong with that.

QUESTION: WHICH FIVE SNACKS WOULD YOU PACK IN YOUR DREAM NATUREBOX?

David: Big Island Pineapple, Blueberry Greek Yogurt Pretzels, PB&J Granola, White Cheddar Jalapeño Popcorn, and Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites (man, those are good).

QUESTION: CAN YOU GIVE US A SNEAK PEEK AT WHAT'S COMING UP ON THE NATUREBOX WEBSITE?

David: Oh, I don't know what I can give away but we have something great coming up. A project I'm personally working on is a personalized catalog and making improvements to recommended snacks.

QUESTION: ARE THERE ANY OTHER PROJECTS IN THE WORKS?

David: I know we want to do a more robust app, but not sure about the timeline. But, we hope to get that running soon!

FINAL QUESTION: DO YOU ACTUALLY JUGGLE?

David: (laughing) No, it was my horrible attempt at juggling which is why the photo is blurry.
