Isaac Maltzer is our social expert and one of the brightest young minds we’ve seen walk through our doors to date. Which is weird because once you get to know him you might think he’s an old man trapped in a young man’s body. Either way, he kills it day in and day out.
When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A social cause you care deeply about and why?
Climate Change. We can push and shove trying to argue which type of person needs which type of representation or protection, but at the end of the day, there’s only one Earth and we all need it equally.
If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?
Editing film trailers
You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?
Christopher Nolan – my favorite film director and a genius in his own right. I have a feeling his tableside conversations would be mindblowing.
Jeff Bezos – I deeply respect people who aren’t afraid to change. A lot of people say they embrace change, but few actually do in moments when it could really make a difference. I think Amazon is one of the greatest examples of ‘adapt or die.’ What started out as an online bookstore, is now a conglomerate that not only includes the internet’s mall, but has various other services like hosting a huge chunk of the internet itself, producing original shows and movies watched by millions, giving gamers livestreaming capabilities in a ballooning market, and is even being used to expand into space exploration! Jeff Bezos deserves every cent he’s made and I’d love to hear his outlook on how he approaches decision-making.
Stanley Milgram – Social psychology is fascinating to me because of how many of its findings and concepts have applications in everyday life. Milgram is one of the most frequently cited social psychologists and I bet talking with him about some of the issues that have arisen just recently with the dawn of the internet and social media would be insane.
In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)
Don’t talk unless it’s good.
