Adam Lucas

What are your technology specialties?
Cloud and Virtualization technologies. My passion is ensuring that systems have high availability, are incredibly efficient, and always reliable.
What was your first memory of using computers?
When I was 6, my uncle brought home an IBM PC with an Intel 8086 that his company no longer needed. I still remember the excitement of getting to boot it up and play games on it by myself!
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
Biking, skiing, hiking, working on my Jeep, beating a new video game, or just chilling with friends and family.
What was the last great book you read?
“Old Man’s War” by John Scalzi. It had a completely unique story of what happens after someone gets old and what else is out in the universe.
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and why would you go there?
I’d revisit the Mediterranean. The blue waters and warm weather make for a perfect retreat.
What is one thing you love about your career?
I can never be quite sure what the next week is going to bring. It’s nothing like a standard 9-5 and I’m ecstatic about that. It keeps me on my toes and always looking forward to what’s next.
What is one thing that everyone should know about Mainstay?
It’s hands down the best company I’ve ever worked for. When I was hired I was told “You’ll only find superstars here” and I haven’t been let down. Everyone here has an obvious passion for technology and are all great to work with.
