He’s our PR/social media coordinator; he’s comfortable as a mentee and as a mentor. And he loves Star Wars.

In other words, he’s practically perfect. Here’s what Lucas had to say in response to these questions we lobbed his way:

Q. What’s your favorite thing about working for the Estipona Group?
A. My favorite part is the personalities I get to interact with on a daily basis. I feel like everyone on the team is my mentor, yet sometimes it goes both ways — I’m able to mentor my leaders on new trends, tactics and goals.

Q. Gone with the Wind, Star Wars, or The Exorcist? Why?
A. Star Wars all the way. If there are gratuitous space battles and clever nerds slinging quips at each other, then it is time well spent in my view.

Q. (Editor’s follow-up:) Who is your Star Wars spirit animal and why? (Say “Jar Jar Binks,” and you’re fired. Just a heads up.)
A. Lucas: HAHA
No.
Umm, my Star Wars spirit animal is a Veractyl. It’s a work horse that looks pretty while doing it.

Editor’s note: Lucas chose a very appropriate spirit animal, because he’s always on fleek while working. And speaking of “on fleek”…

Q. As a representative of the Millennial generation, we assume you’re sick of all the stereotypes. Which one chaps your hide most? (You can answer as soon as you’re done taking that selfie. No hurry. We’ll wait.)
A. The idea that we’re entitled because we believe in a better world and are willing to push back and make it known. It’s not entitled to envision a better way. It’s only entitled to expect everyone else to do it your way for no other reason than your seniority…now that’s entitlement.

I’m hoping we can have a conversation about something, and I want to begin by telling you that this makes me very uncomfortable — because while I’ve been thinking about and dealing with these issues that I’d like to discuss for decades, I’ve mostly handled it by keeping my head down and pushing t

The Estipona Group is expanding its pool of contractors!   Ready to dip your toe in? The water's great! (Yup, we've exhausted the swimming pool metaphor.) Which position is made for you? It deep-ends. (Oh come on — it had to be done!)
