Introducing Product Usability Manager, Melisa Zachrich

The elevator just closed and you’ve got 30 seconds to pitch the random reader on who you are and why they should read your rants.  Go..

I would tell them the first 50 subscribers to my blog get a free set of these totally cool moose head mugs cousin Eddie drank eggnog from in the widely-acclaimed movie Christmas Vacation.  Who doesn’t want a set of these beauties to impress their family and friends with?  What they don’t know is I’m secretly using them to test the “usability” of the moose head mug.  See, this is totally work related.  (Of course, I’ll need a pair myself to conduct usability testing.  Business expense?  Yeehee, I’m feeling giddy.)  

Are the antlers hard to grip?  Is it as easy to use as cousin Eddie makes it seem?  Highly unlikely…

Name the actor/actress that will portray you in the movie about you.  Why is that a fit?

Reese Witherspoon.
She’s smart (dad’s a surgeon, mom’s a PhD), funny, gorgeous, and seems completely approachable and down to earth.
She’s a vegetarian and I’m a vegetarian want-to-be who happens to like steak more than cows.
She loves karaoke.  Hello!  Who can resist a girl who can karaoke?
She’s younger, wealthier, and much more attractive.


My first car was a Red Mustang and here’s how it defined who I am….
I have an alter ego who is free, uninhibited, and I always wanted a pony?


What is your favorite song, and how does it relate to who you are?
Imagine by John Lennon.  Inside this ultra-conservative, boring snooze of an exterior is the heart of a free-spirited, hippie optimist.  Group hug anyone?


If you could trade places with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose and why?

Robin Williams.  I would just sit at home and make myself laugh hysterically all day long.
