What is your role at Mainstay?
I am a member of the Desktop Technician team. I deploy computers and other equipment at client sites.
What professional events do you participate in, or what skills or accomplishments have you attained, that sets you apart?
I recently graduated with an Associate Degree in Cybersecurity Investigations from Manchester Community College in New Hampshire.
What was your first memory of using computers?
I remember when I was a kid I had my airsoft gun in the house. Something startled me and I accidentally pulled the trigger and broke the laptop LCD panel. I had another computer of the same model that was running slow. So I grabbed the computer, took it apart and replaced the panel. To this day my mom doesn’t know that happened.
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
I am either hanging out with friends and family, riding my ATV or on my motorcycle.
What was the last great book you read?
The last book I read was Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
What would you do if you had an extra 5 hours every week?
I would take time to catch up on things around the house because there isn’t a lot of extra time during the week. On the weekend I want to enjoy my free time. An extra five hours a week would help me get things done and keep my weekends free to do fun stuff.
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and why would you go there?
I would most likely end up in Pittsburg, New Hampshire. I like to ride ATVs and having the time to do that with my friends would be amazing. The idea of being away from technology is a great feeling. Being able to experience nature not through a phone is something that is rarely done today.
What are you most frequently heard listening to?
When it comes to music I don’t have a particular genre. I listen to a variety of music just to keep things interesting. Recently I have been listening to more podcasts.
Favorite sports teams?
Washington Redskins
What is one thing you love about your career?
One of the things I love about my career is how technology is always changing.
