The largest challenge of my day-to-day job is the highly differentiated tasks. I’ll be working with printers, scanners, workstations, servers, and shipping equipment all in the same day – sometimes before noon. I enjoy the high variability of my job.

The people and the amenities. I’d expand but it’d be all sappy.
5. What made you want to work with electronics and computers for a living?
I’ve been working on or with computers since ’95 when my dad got his. I immediately took the case off of it to see what was in there, I was hooked.

Don’t get stuck doing one thing, try to learn as much as you can about everything. There is so much new technology coming out all the time that will be mainstream in the near future.

I’m bombarded everyday with positive things and I dislike picking favorites in nearly everything. So I’ll pick working here.
8. When there is an issue with a computer, what is your process for finding a solution to the problem?
It’s a process of questions which when answered fix the issue. One of the below questions if answered should lead to a fix.
What isn’t working properly or at all? What happened before the issue occurred? How is it supposed to work? Are there any errors that can hint at what happened?
9. What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with friends/family, playing video games with friends, and doing nothing.
