About Paul Faerber

I'm the Director of Engineering at Blendtec. I've been with Blendtec since 2006. Part of what makes my job so fun is our great group of creative, clever, dedicated engineers. I love to engineer products that people use every day—products that people use to achieve their health goals, and sometimes make decadent treats, too!

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love to play games, go on hikes, read, watch movies, and cuddle. Most nights we have healthy smoothies made with our Blendtec blender. Weekends are the perfect time for whole wheat pancakes and crepes. Our kids have come to associate the sound of the blender with a healthy treat!

Each of the six buttons was programmed with a unique blend cycle, but it wasn’t very clear which button was the right choice for a given blend
