Fast is a hardworking individual who can adapt and persevere through any engineering problem. He is cheerful and can be extremely talkative, (especially on topics involving his interests) ranging from scientific discussions on the newest and most innovative technologies, to endless debates on which weapon looks more epic in that one videogame. When not glued to the computer either programing, streaming or gaming (sometimes all at the same time) he plays basketball. He’s not very tall, but it is a team sport where speed, skill and strategy are just as important as height. Fast likes being a playmaker, A.K.A the loud guy who sets up the team for success. He’ll never turn down an opportunity to have fun and lives his life without any regrets.
“I’m Fast… at eating tasty food… then falling asleep… zzz...”
Dane is one of the older (read: sagacious) new additions to the Dariel family, who's currently in the final stages of his MSc degree at UJ. He can be described as a man of few words, but lets his actions do the talking. Dane is eager to assist his colleagues, and codes like a beast when called upon. When not stress testing the hardware at Dariel he can be found at home either spending time with his fantastic wife, or getting lost in the world of gaming.
“For the Alliance!”
