I had the pleasure of interviewing Matt from Fazed Box Mods LLC or Fazed as most people know him. A previous reviewer turned vendor, I believe he loves what he does. Of course most of you know that I am his wife, so this interview was pretty easy to set up! Here are some facts and opinions from Matt.
ECA: How many birthdays have you had??
Matt: Too many! More than you, less than the Pope.
ECA: Why did you decide to start your own company?
Matt: I was making mods and posting pictures on Facebook, just for my own use and suddenly I was getting bombarded with emails from people wanting to purchase them, so I kept making them and decided to turn it into a business.
ECA: What is the first thing you do when you get out of bed?
Matt: Trip over a dog and then pee…
ECA: How do you come up with new designs?
Matt: Looking at the world with a modder’s eye, I assess the potential for everything to become an ecig! If I decide I can build it, and it’s cost effective, it gets added to the site.
ECA: What is your most embarrassing moment?
Matt: Pooping my pants on my wedding day, during pictures! I had to throw my underwear away at the firestation where we were getting the pictures. I bet they were surprised when they got back! I really had to go!
ECA: What is your favorite juice flavor?
Matt: Banana Pudding from Dark City Vapor and Mahalo from Aroma E-Juice.
ECA: Are you ready for the zombie apocalypse and how have you prepared?
Matt: I got my boomstick, baby!
ECA: If you had to go to a vendor, other than yourself, who would you choose?
Matt: I go to other vendors all the time because they have products I don’t carry and I think some of them are really neat.
ECA: What would be your last meal?
Matt: A filet mingon with blue cheese crumbles and fried onions. On the side, steamed asparagus and fried zucchini.
ECA: What is your proudest moment as a vendor?
Matt: VapeBash 2013
ECA: What is your favorite hobby?
Matt: I have several… Jeeps, playing the bass, hanging with Abby, and of course ecigs.
ECA: If you could have any ecig mod, what would it be?
Matt: The Sovemaestro Nivel mod.
ECA: If you had to get a tattoo, what would it be?
Matt: A butterfly on my lower back!! LOL! Seriously though, I have my wedding ring and that’s enough.
ECA: Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
Matt: I grew up all over the midwest and have lived in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio. I currently live in Lexington, Kentucky.
ECA: What are you most passionate about with vaping?
Matt: Spreading the good word, converting new people and fighting to make sure our right to vape isn’t taken away from us.
ECA: If you could give a new vaper one thing, what would it be?
Matt: Hope for a better life without cigarettes. Also, links to sites to help them on their journey, such as this one.
ECA: What is your favorite show on TV?
Matt: Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Lost, The Americans, Dexter and The Glades.
ECA: If you could do one thing before you die, what would it be?
ECA: Tell me what you think sets your company apart?
Matt: Aside from a few select items that we purchased to resell, everything I sell is hand made by me. I’m kind of a perfectionist, so even if a mod works, but doesn’t look just right, it doesn’t get sold.
I just want to give a big thank you to Matt for taking time out of his busy schedule for all of us to learn a little more about him!!
