What is your role at Mainstay?
As a Response Services Technician, a great team of fellow technicians and I handle the fires that come in, and work to put them out! It’s really satisfying, because we get to see the change that happens when we fix real people’s problems.
What was your first memory of using computers?
When I was around eight or nine years old, my brother and I started taking apart computers in our basement. We would take parts from a bunch of them and install the parts into one “super computer”. It was really slow, but we thought it was cool!
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
When I am not working I often go driving around the Lakes Region, relax on a beach, take a boat ride on Lake Winnipesaukee, or do hobby blacksmithing on my homemade forge!
What was the last great book you read?
I love reading “The Space Trilogy” by C.S. Lewis.
What is something unique about you?
I got my Bachelor’s degree in Government with a minor in Psychology before pursuing the IT field.
What would you do if you had an extra 5 hours every week?
I like to spend as much time as I can outside enjoying the beautiful New Hampshire views.
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and why would you go there?
If I could go anywhere in the world, I would take a month long trip across Europe. I would love to Scotland and Ireland, then take a trip to Southern France (right on the Mediterranean) to spend time with my wife’s cousins and extended family.
What is one thing you love about your career?
I love the ever-changing field of IT. It allows me to soak up every bit of information I can.
What is one thing that everyone should know about Mainstay?
The team at Mainstay is unlike any I have ever met. They work together to ensure clients feel like they aren’t just another number but a part of the “family”.
