“Do, or do not. There is no try.” Yoda, of course!
What is your role at CompuCom?
I am the Product Director for CompuCom’s Cloud Technology Services (CTS) Business Unit.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
My favorite part-time job was an IT job at the Operational Support Facility for the NEXRAD Doppler weather radar center in Norman, Oklahoma. Growing up in Oklahoma, I always enjoy spring storm season, and it was fascinating to work with the teams that developed the radar hardware and software, as well as the scientists that were creating new models for storm prediction and analysis.
What motivates you at work?
Bringing together different groups, whether within CompuCom or with our clients or partners, to build new offerings, venture into new areas, or achieve what others say couldn’t be done.
What are your interests?
Sports, coaching recreational soccer, movies and music
Why did you choose to work at CompuCom?
I started with CompuCom straight out of college. CompuCom provided me a role that enabled me to be deeply technical, consult with clients, and nurture and develop a career path.
Share a little about your background.
I have been with CompuCom since 1999. I started as a Systems Engineer and my first project was an OS2 to Windows NT desktop and laptop migration project. After a few years as an Engineer and a Consultant, I moved to a Solution Architect role and began our Virtualization and Cloud practice. When the CTS Business Unit was formed in 2015, I was excited to join the team and lend my extensive experience in data center and virtualization technologies.
What is your favorite place in the world?
Name any beach!
What is the best part of working at CompuCom?
I really enjoy the teams I have worked with. It makes it easy to collaborate and build new solutions and offerings when we can kid around with each other, hang out after work and share common interests.
What drives you in life – what are you most passionate about?
Seeing the results of hard work, whether it is projects at work or things I do with my family. Being able to stand back and say “I was a part of that” is very rewarding.
