Brandon Ring, 31

VIP Services Manager at Pure

Hometown: Kalispell, Mont.

Best Tip: $2,000 from some British international exchange rate traders. They deal with trading billions of dollars in just one day, so a couple grand is literally pocket change to them.

If he wasn’t taking care of the shiny people at Pure for a living, he’d be: In finance. I was a stockbroker previously for about five years, so I would still be doing that.

Color he associates himself with: Black—like my suit and car.

Superpower of choice: I would like to be able to fly. X-ray vision could come in handy as well but would probably be too distracting.

What do you want to see invented in your lifetime? A cure for global warming.

Favorite iPhone app: I am T-Pain.

The thing you don’t know about him is: When I was younger, I competed in ski racing at the Junior Olympics.

So this guy comes up to the bar and starts talking to this girl. Now I know, and everyone else at the bar knows, that this girl’s a man—but she’s really pretty with all the surgery and makeup and all. So this guy comes up and he’s talking to her and nobody tells him because he’s just rude to everyone.
