Jared, or more formally known as Jared-Paul Steven Montgomery, is a self proclaimed "gamer geek" and technology enthusiast. He lives with his American Eskimo, who, Jared admits, has become a huge part of his life. We interviewed Jared about his lifestyle and how Umizato has impacted his daily habits:
I am a calligrapher by trade.
My favorite hobbies include gaming, classical music, learning new software, tinkering with hardware, and creating new fonts.
I spend almost all of my waking hours at a monitor or on my Android devices.
I was researching blue light filtering glasses and noticed Umizato while perusing Amazon. Umizato caught my attention right away and I went directly to your website. I picked your company based on style, the percentage of blue light blocked, and the minimal amber hue that I find to be very aesthetically pleasing
I own the Pictor and absolutely adore them. It had a very classic 1950's-esque design mixed with modern framework.
What is important to me is comfort, style, and 90% blue light filtration. The Pictor glasses fulfilled all of these.
Generally speaking I get about 2-3 hours of sleep due to insomnia. Since wearing these I have been getting at least double the aforementioned hours.
I first started gaming when I was 5 years of age on NES and MS-DOS. I started playing competitively in my teens and early 20's.
Top 5 games for me would be Warcraft 3, World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy XIV, and Heroes of the Storm.
Craziest thing I have ever done? I worked in a forensics crime laboratory for 10 years. Stories not suitable for the faint of heart. That and I am not at liberty to discuss.
Fictional personal hero would be hands down, Captain Kathryn Janeway (Strong female role model, intelligent, strong code of ethics/morals, and compassionate yet firm leadership skills). Non-fiction personal hero would be Dr. Terri Haddix, a Forensic Pathologist (no ego, driven, wicked sense of humor, and one of the most terrifyingly brilliant individuals I've ever crossed paths with).
A very big thank you to Jared for giving us the opportunity to learn a little more about him! We love getting to know our customers, so If you've got an interesting story you would like to share, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
