Favorite Quote: 

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals” – Henry David Thoreau

What you love about your job/working for AIT: 

Without question, my favorite thing about working at Arctic IT is the people – we have a great team of customer-focused professionals with incredible talent.

Career Experience:

Throughout the course of my career one theme has been constant – working out how best to apply technology – whether for clients or the companies I worked for – to solve business challenges. This holds true for my time in the Internet Service Provider industry where I worked with consumers and businesses to identify the best, most economical ways to access the Internet, as a project and program manager, business analyst or as a business owner.

Field Expertise:

Developing wide area networking, storage, server, and networking solutions to meet business objectives and goals. Have held ownership stakes (as a sole proprietor or partner) in three businesses previously which provides a practical perspective to the consulting and support I provide clients today.

Education:

Graduated from A.J. Dimond High School, Charter College (Computerized Account Systems), and have continued undergrad work at Alaska Pacific University.

Certifications:

Sales certifications include HP Storage, McAfee, Symantec, and multiple Microsoft qualifications.

Charities I support:

Junior Achievement of Alaska (State Board Secretary), Anchorage Fairs & Festivals (President), Alaska Workers Association (Organizing Committee Member)

Places I have lived:

Norfolk, VA; Honolulu, HI; Anchorage, AK

Hobbies:

Motorcycle touring, international travel, and more recently physical fitness.

Fun Facts:

I have family spread all over the globe and enjoy visiting as often as possible – familial destinations include Indonesia, South Africa, Australia, Mauritius. I’m also a bit of a gadget-guy – I love figuring out (playing with) new technology.
