Introducing Justin Riddler

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I'm originally from St. Charles, MO and went to the University of Missouri—St. Louis where I got my Bachelors in Psychology and Theatre, and my Masters in Education with a focus on Andragogy. I have had many jobs in my 25 years of life, from opera singer to security guard, and now I am the newest customer service representative at Paizo, having left my previous job as a receptionist at Microsoft.

I began playing RPGs in the late '90s in the wake of Pokémon leaving the Magic and L5R worlds starved for players. I learned to play at my local game store and have been pursuing the hobby ever since. I started with 3rd Edition and then 3.5, before branching out into other game systems. My fiancé first introduced me to Pathfinder during the open beta test for the Advanced Players Guide.

In the summer of 2011 we moved to Redmond, WA so my fiancé could work towards his Masters degree. Shortly after our move I began playing Pathfinder Society, then GMing Pathfinder Society, then coordinating Pathfinder Society, and before I knew it I had picked up running Pathfinder Society four nights a week! I became the Venture Lieutenant for the Seattle area in September 2012 under Venture Captain Kyle Elliot.

Welcome and good luck in the new job. Ashamed to admit it, but I've worked at a community college for 16+ years and had to look up Andragogy.
Of course, I am a techie...sooo..educational theory is not my discipline!

No no no! First you have to leave a riddle about how it's going to happen. Yeesh. Get your priorities straight. And, given the first name, he should give it in teen-angsty song form.

Spoiler:
Sorry, JR, hope the "dream" keeps you alive this time.

Oh, gods, somebody STOP ME!


Welcome, Justin!

So glad to have you on the team!

Already Justin's been a great help. He answered a question of mine regarding my Adventure Path subscription promptly and concisely. Turn off the wood-chipper, I think this one's a keeper.

St. Charles? Did you hang out at the Fantasy Shop on West Clay?

And when it used to be on North Main! ^_^


Heck, Studpuffin and I were there all the time (at West Clay). We didn't game there, though, just shopped. I didn't know it was on North Main. I used to run a store there.

Small world!

Justin, So happy to have you as part of the Customer Service Team!

Wait... Justin... Riddler? A B.A. in Psychology and Theater... and a masters in education. Clearly a very smart individual... And a nerd given his occupation... Has Paizo just Hired Edward Nigma under a clever pseudonym?

Liz! If you start to find neon green Florescent question mark trophies laying around don't be afraid to speak up!

Woop! Way to go Justin! And for any Paizo staff reading on -- in his short time here he's already helped me with an order issue and has been more than awesome about the whole thing.

If he were working customer service at a bike shop, people would stop driving cars. Thanks again man!

ok, so that explains who the dragon was, popping up on the message boards and what not...

Welcome aboard Justin!

Welcome! Nice to have someone from my somewhat neck of the woods working for Paizo!

It's the perfect avatar for the newest customer service rep.

a) With a name like Riddler, it needs to be a creature that would likewise riddle (say, a Sphinx).

b) Compare it to his fellow Paizoins: Jason Bulmahn has a fierce dragon to overcome through force, Riddler is the CG dragon that you just can't slay but instead need his help --- but first, the riddles!

c) Consider your normal customer service call ---
"Of course I can help you with that, but first, you must answer me these questions three?"
- "WHAT -- is your order number?"
- "WHAT -- did you try to order?"
- "WHAT -- do you expect me to do about it?"


Grats and good luck!

But wait - isn't he supposed to hand out cookies or something?

I had to look up 'andragogy.' It wasn't nearly as scandalous as I was hoping. :)

A Masters in teaching old dogs new tricks, huh?

Is [redacted] finally going to get house trained?
