Donald Januik


Born: The Palm Springs of Washington, aka Yakima. It was a cold and somber summer evening. Crows were cawing, fruit was ripening, and the rest I’ll leave to your imagination.

What was your first job?

My first job was at the winery. Andrew and I would sometimes head out East with our dad to help for several days at a time while Three Rivers Winery was allowing him to use their facility.

What is the most important lesson you learned growing up?

Teachers will be lenient with your grade if you bring them wine.

What’s on your playlist? 

Not sure. I lost my AirPods. If you see them, please contact me at 425.481.5502.

If you could spend one week anywhere in the world, where would it be? 

Without question, the winery, followed by Toyko, Japan.

How would your colleagues describe you? 

Hairy, sexy, and confused

What would you do even if you didn’t get paid for it?

Painting, though I suspect most professional painters would attest that painting is already a profession that doesn’t pay.

What is your personal motto? 

Challenge all assumptions, even the assumption that assumptions should be challenged.
