Houston Rockets Basketball Welcome Party
John Williams

Houston Rockets Basketball Welcome Party

One of the best things about your first few weeks working at DMC is that you get to host a welcome party of your choice! As an avid fan of basketball, I chose to go to a Houston Rocket’s game and took the Houston office with me. After a catered dinner at the office, we carpooled over to the stadium. I will watch almost any basketball game alone and enjoy myself, but being at the game with the DMC Houston team made it even more fun. It allowed us to hang out and bond outside the office, ...

Hawaiian Shirt Fridays
Peter Rijks

Hawaiian Shirt Fridays

I bought my first Hawaiian shirt (which is still in my rotation) in Orange Beach, Alabama during spring break of 2001. Since then, Hawaiian Shirt Friday has become a personal tradition of mine lasting the last dozen or so years. At my two previous jobs, it remained a personal tradition, and there was never any doubt in my mind that I would continue my tradition at DMC. However, while it took a while to start catching on, here at DMC it’s become more than just a personal tradition, and t...
