  • What was the first album you ever bought?

  • What is the most interesting part of your job?
    In the world of IT, no two days are the same. No two hours are the same. One minute we are helping employees format Word documents, the next solving a network outage. Sometimes doing both at the same time. IT keeps me interested and always on my toes.
