I am a nerd at heart. I am passionate about technology and always keeping up with the latest and greatest. Observing and participating in the fast-paced world of technology is rewarding in so many ways. Constantly expanding my skill set, allowing me to create dynamic environments of many advanced intertwined pieces results in a gratifying feeling of accomplishment that I strive for. Solving these problems on my own, creating advanced and simplistic solutions, learning from others that are in this nimble field, and further enlightening others on the powers of technology and how they can simplify these processes is an experience I couldn’t trade for any other career.
This devotion to technology has a strong flip side, where in my off-time I enjoy spending time away from screens and technology and appreciating the outdoors. Bicycling (specifically mountain biking), outdoor photography, hiking, camping, extreme sports, and spending time with my girlfriend consume 100% of my free time.
I have worked a large variety of jobs from very detail-oriented demands from golf course maintenance, to the rigorous physical demands of outdoor summer landscaping, to the tedious work of engineering in manufacturing plants, moving into a great IT company called Apparatus out of Indianapolis. I spent 3.5 years there, learning a great deal of skills via systems administration, and was later moved into an internal ServiceNow admin for the company. This allowed me to work with more business units and reviewing needs and options for improvements in computer interaction. This tenure lead me to my current position at AHEAD as a Solutions Architect where I am able to speak with clients directly to bring them into the golden age of ServiceNow and application integrations.
