The People I Work With…

Musings By Joschik
Christian obsesses over collectibles, antiques and toys more than the average person, but (he believes) in a productive way. Documenting collectibles has been a passion since working on a book about his favorite childhood toys from Timpo 41 years ago.


Saw this today on Facebook  –



and yes, that was hobbyDB… and yes, we hired him!  It made me reflect on the amazing, gregarious, dedicated and fun team I have been working with – regardless of whether they were interns or my co-founder Alex.  Same for our Squad Members, many (too many to list here) of which have become friends, and some I have now met in “real life”.

And then often they come back!  Ron moved to the East Coast but stayed involved and recently joined the hobbyDB-run Model Car Hall of Fame!

Ron, I am glad you made the right choice(s)!

I wore the Godzilla shirt. And I never walked into a job interview with more confidence.
