Faculty Friday: Russ Ham

Russ Ham

What is your position at Dillabaugh’s Flooring America?
Sales Project Management (salesman extraordinaire).

How long have you been with the company?
August of 2013 is when I was hired.

What was your dream job as a child?
A rockstar! I had my tennis racket strung like a guitar and I used to play air guitar. I’ve owned 11 guitars and can’t play a chord.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
New Year’s Eve 1991. I went to the Cow Palace in San Francisco. It was the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana all at one show!

If you had to listen to the same song on repeat for 12 hours, what would it be?
Vicarious by Tool. It’s just a great song that’s all over the board.

If you had to choose to live without one of your sense, which one would you give up?
Smell. There are so many nasty smells out there so I wouldn’t mind losing it. I’d really hate to lose my sense of humor haha!

Which fad do you wish would come back?
The SFLB! Short Front, Long Back – the mullet. That and bell bottoms. It used to be the cool thing to wear when I was younger.

Favorite movie or book of all time?
Favorite book would be It by Stephen King and my favorite movie is Weird Science.

What’s your biggest goal in life right now?
One day I aspire to open my own art gallery/gig prints (concert posters) in Portland or Seattle area.

What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?
In the summer we take our beach cruisers to Ann Morrison and ride to the Bown Crossing area and then ride back and have breakfast or lunch at Goldy’s.

Do you have a nickname and what’s the story behind it?
Poster Tuna. A lot of posters have a very limited release of something on foil paper and I have the biggest foil collection out there for Emek (the artist) and some guy said I was attracted to anything shiny like a tuna fish. So that’s how I got the nickname. It’s even on my license plate.

Thank you, Russ for a great interview and for being a part of the Dillabaugh’s sales team. We love having you and your unique personality around!
