Laconia, NH
What is your role at Mainstay?
My role is to provide our clients with knowledgeable, efficient and professional technical support services. I answer any questions clients may have and offer assistance whenever needed.
What are your technology specialties?
I hold industry certifications such as MCSA for servers and MCSA for workstations, CCNA, CompTIA A+, Security+, Project+ & three CIW certifications.
What was your first memory of using computers?
I remember when I was in fourth grade, my school got their first computer and each student got a limited time to try it out. I believe I drew a picture of flower and thought it was amazing. After I played a game of Pong, though, I was hooked!
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
I am either doing projects on the house, hanging out with my wife and three girls or fly fishing. We all love the outdoors here in NH so we spend a lot of time hiking, swimming, skiing and camping.
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and why would you go there?
Alaska! The scenery and wildlife are absolutely amazing there. In the summer you can fish all day and all night and still be able to see what you’re doing.
What are you most frequently heard listening to?
I enjoy most styles of music though I probably lean more heavily towards alternative such as Rusted Root, Kings of Leon and Cold Play.
What is your favorite sports team?
New England Patriots! (5 Times World Champs!)
What is one thing you love about your career?
I love technology and love to help, anytime I can do both I am quite happy. I have been in the technical field for many years and I can truly say that I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.
What is one thing that everyone should know about Mainstay?
How thoroughly the team strives to uphold the company’s core values, mission and vision. At Mainstay these important principles are not just slogans on the wall, the team is truly guided by them. The mission of giving more than we get as well as the vision to positively impact every life we touch are philosophies that each and every team member strive to achieve daily.
