Name: Arris Bahrami
Title: Account Executive
What is the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
This employee spotlight — I feel famous!
If you could visit anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Antarctica. I love the adventure aspect of travel, and I think visiting Antarctica would be quite the experience.
What is the best concert you’ve ever attended?
I once saw my favorite artist (Above & Beyond) in the Wynwood Art District of Miami. Formerly an industrial district, Wynwood was redesigned as a place for entertainment; it is comprised of urban graffiti and hidden music venues in old buildings that were formerly factories. A very cool place!
Do you have any hidden talents?
I never spell anything wrong.
Who would you most like to switch places with for a day (this can be a celebrity, family member, animal, coworker, anybody you wish)?
Eminem so I can know what it’s like to be the greatest rapper of all time. I would spend the entire day freestyling.
What is your go-to karaoke song?
Candy Shop by 50 Cent. I gave a live performance of this track on a cruise ship once in front of a large crowd. They wanted an encore so I transitioned to My Band by D12. These two tracks, plus Superman by Eminem, are the primary tracks in my karaoke lineup.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Kale, because I’m going to get very tired of whatever food I choose if it’s the only thing I can eat. So, I might as well eat a lot of kale and get into incredible shape.
What is your all-time favorite movie?
Anchorman, but I don’t do movies often. I prefer television shows.
How do you typically spend your free time?
With others. Doesn’t matter much to me what I’m doing as long as I’m spending time with friends or family.
