What is your role at Mainstay?
The majority of my time is spent traveling to client sites to help fix issues that cannot be taken care of remotely. I have met a lot of great people during these travels!
What was your first memory of using computers?
My first memory of really using a computer dates back to 1995. I remember this because Windows 95 had just been released. Needless to say, I have been spending way too much time on computers ever since.
What was the last great book you read?
The last great book I read was the Steve Wozniak autobiography, iWoz. It is written in a way that anyone can appreciate it, even those who aren’t into computers. It was interesting to read about computer culture before there even really was an established culture.
What would you do if you had an extra 5 hours every week?
With an extra five hours per week I would spend them hiking. I love being in the woods and lately I have been getting into nature photography.
What are you most frequently heard listening to?
As cliché as it sounds I really do listen to a little of everything. Two of my all-time favorites are David Bowie and The Pixies though. I also find myself listening to electronic music quite a bit.
Favorite sports team?
Favorite sports team would definitely be the New England Patriots. I’ve only missed a few games in the last decade. I also have been known to watch a Celtics game every now and again.
What is one thing you love about your career?
I love keeping up with new technologies in the computing world. I dabble in web development in my free time and the web landscape in particular is always changing at a remarkable pace.
What is one thing everyone should know about Mainstay Technologies?
I have never worked with a better team than the one here at Mainstay. Everyone is passionate about technology and willing to help with any issues any way they can. It’s really a great atmosphere to work in full of unique characters.
