Who do you think is the most fierce or talented designer at Topcoder and why?
Tough question. If I have to pick who stands out among designers, I would say iaminfinite and L.O.I. as they have good design skills and understanding. Moreover, they have a never-ending source of energy to submit in overlapping and continuous challenges.

What do you do when not working?
Play games and spend time with my kids.
