Q&A

What keeps you awake at night?

The next step.
I'm constantly problem-solving and running through scenarios in my head to come up with the best possible outcomes. This process helps me decide the next step, be comfortable taking on any challenge that might present itself, and hunt for other problems.

What Inspires you to come to work each day?

People.
I find joy in helping others. I've dedicated my life to using Technology to improve the lives of others. Sometimes it's on a smaller level, and sometimes it's on a broader scope. But being able to save someone's day, improve office workflow, or fortify system security are the things that drive me.

How and Why did you get into this business?

For me business is technology.
I got into technology because it made me happy, and it just so happens the business allowed me to utilize technology to improve the lives of others. My passion and reason for being in this business are using technology to promote growth and improve lives.
