Desktop Support Engineer
Service issues and Technical Support I started working with computers in 2002 while I was in the military. My interest was simple starting out, I worked on Excel spreadsheets to Access databases. I advanced from making an Ethernet cable to wiring whole buildings. I have a wide range of experience with different technology ranging from Audio/Visual, Security, Access Control, Structure Cabling, to working on different commercial networks. I really like working in IT because of the instant gratification you get when you help a client that has a problem and I am able to fix that problem.
Every issue I work on is another adventure I get to go on and see where it takes me. I live in Vinton with my wife Sarah, two foster kids, and two cats. In my spare time, I like to. Wait, do I have spare time? I spend as much time as possible with my wife and two very special kids. When I do have time to myself I am usually on a news website or tech related website. I love how technology is rapidly changing before our eyes, things that use to be impossible are becoming possible. I am excited to be in a field that is able to utilize and adapt to the change.
