I’ve always had a fascination with economics, technology and business. I received my Bachelors of Science in Business Management in 2008, and since then have received a number of other certifications as I continue down the path of life-long learning.
My career has been focused in IT where I have applied my education and experience to move from an individual contributor in the field of Store Support and Store Systems Development, to a leadership role managing a team of technical support engineers.
Growing up I always wanted to be a police officer, firefighter or something exciting. I never imagined I’d be working in retail support, but it is one of those things that happened and I found a career I am passionate about. On the bright side, I’ve had some of the most exciting times of my life in retail support, nothing like system wide credit system failures on a Black Friday. It’s challenging and most importantly for me it is a lot of fun to solve technical issues in a high stress situation while keeping calm and positive.
My career didn’t happen by itself, it took a lot of hard work and long hours, thankfully my wife was next to me the entire time encouraging me along the way. A lot of people can go a lifetime never finding their perfect partner, I was fortunate to find mine early.
The Mrs. and I like to spend time together outdoors. Over the last few years we’ve taken up hiking and kayaking and we just enjoy spending time with each other outdoors. We do both enjoy going out to the movies, but some days it’s nice just to stay home, crash on the couch with a good movie and a bowl of popcorn.
