Getting started in tech...
What did you do before the job you have now?
I served in the Air Force for 10 years as an Aircraft Electro/Environmental technician.
How did you get started in the software/technology industry?
After leaving the Air Force I was looking for a career that was challenging and offered a diverse career path. Technology made the most sense.
What inspires you about technology?
The ability to connect people and things. If it can be imagined, it can be done.
Being a ConnectWise colleague...
What’s something about your job that makes you feel accomplished?
Talking to and working with partners. Hearing a problem and being able to offer a solution that makes their lives and job easier.
What’s a project or accomplishment you’re proud of?
Maturity around our cloud platform. Working with the dev ops and cloud platform team has allowed us to build robust monitoring infrastructure that we use to identify and address potential issues before they affect our partner base.
What’s something you want people to know about ConnectWise?
Every support ticket, forum post, bug report, and feature request are reviewed by a member of the product team; this includes data analytics, QA, development, product management, and education. We focus on solving the problems that our partners experience so we can keep delivering quality solutions.
And now for some fun!
If you could have any superpower for 24-hours, what would it be and why?
I love to travel but hate packing, so I would love the ability to shrink all of my clothes and dive gear so I could travel with just a small backpack.
What’s a country you’d like to visit and why?
The Galapagos Islands. I am an avid diver and the diversity of the marine life in the Galapagos is amazing.
What’s the bucket-list item you’re most looking forward to?
Definitely night diving with Manta rays in Kona, Hawaii!
