Meet the Squirrels: Llaran Smiles

This is the eighteenth post in an ongoing Meet the Squirrels series. Read more in this series.

Llaran is a native of Canton, Ohio and works in technical support for Squirrels. He spends his workdays interacting with customers to answer their technical questions and troubleshoot any issues they may have.

After Slingshot was released, the company went to a local sports park to play mini golf, drive bumper cars, have a picnic and so much more. The biggest event of the day, the go-kart race, was Llaran’s favorite activity so far. “The coolest thing I’ve ever done at Squirrels is the Slingshot Release Go-Cart Cup,” he said.

The team that Llaran works with is his favorite part of Squirrels. “The people that work here are fantastic and make coming to work everyday a pleasure.  Work hard, play hard.”

Your idol and why:  My father.  He struggled with alcoholism but overcame it and managed to provide everything we could have needed as children.  I am still not sure how he afforded the things he gave us.

Your motto:  You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

If you could be any animal, what would you be?  A bear. My nickname among friends is Kuma; the bear from the Tekken video games.

When you were a little kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  I have always loved the ocean and animals.  When I was a kid I wanted to be a marine biologist.

If you could have one super power, what would it be? Shape shifting.  It would be cool to be able to turn into any animal and have their abilities.
