Interview with Paul Stamatiou – The Passionate Technologist

Paul Stamatiou or better known as Stammy (with his creative branding via shirt) has already accomplished quite a lot – and he hasn’t even graduated college yet. So far he has:

  1. Started and maintained a successful tech news blog and managed to differentiate himself from the sea of monotony
  2. Starred Nike commercial
  3. Hosted events for General Motors – he ain’t stammering Stammy
  4. Interned at Yahoo!
  5. Started his own web company, Skribit – a great original idea which has taken off nicely (look in bottom right hand corner of this page) and most importantly
  6. Interviewed by Tivate.com – nice plug huh? 😉 .

Stammy is a nice easy-going guy with a positive attitude. The most difficult thing about him is pronouncing his last name (Stam-uh-tee-you), hence the nicky Stammy. In this interview, Paul talks about his accomplishments, shows us his work desk, reflects on his public speaking skills and admires his idol Steve Jobs (with quote!).

Take a look at Stammy's specs here....
