Forrest Eckert is our Laner of the Week!

M / L

Forrest Eckert recently moved here from Austin, Texas with a degree in Applied Mathematics. While living in the city, Forrest has found it difficult to cope with his obsession with Queso.  New York's Italian food is slowly helping fill the void of Queso for him. Forrest is also extremely thankful for karaoke. 

Shortly after moving to NYC Forrest joined the Lane. He began on a large tech pop up and quickly became part of the ML family. He is currently back in Austin holding down the fort at SxSW with our Austin Laners. Forrest has the most positive and uplifting mentality which makes him a perfect fit on the Lane! Outside the Lane, Forrest takes improv/ acting classes and enjoys playing fantasy sports. He's our constant source of comic relief and such a blast to work with!
