Nathan Nathaniel "Nay Nay" Brooks, the youngest of the crew with a great attitude eagerness to learn and penchant for being 5 minutes late. What does Nay Nay like you ask? Well, he mumbles, we aren't sure what he said when asked. Pretty sure he has some sort of game system that he plays and an alarm clock that doesn't always work.

Scott Harper, he doesn't work here but we wanted to write a Bio of him. After graduating from high school, he joined the Navy. The Navy is where he learned how to spend time with other men for long periods of time while being in cramped spaces and sweating. See, Scott was a radar technician oftentimes being in cramped quarters, whilst trying to complete a task. Upon leaving the Navy he wandered aimlessly trying to find purpose when he was scooped up by a caring stepfather that guided him through a career as an electrician where he thrived. Why add him to our Bio section you ask? Simple Scott has the worst case of RBF on the planet. I, no WE feel he is unfairly judged by his permanent grimace and want you to know, He is not always an asshole.
