Dad & Solutions Architect – Michigan, US
What was your very first job?
My dad was in the military, and I lived on an Air Force base in Germany when I was 13 or 14. I signed up for this summer hire program on the base, and got a job at the base newspaper. I helped them with their computers, created some newspaper layouts, etc.
How did you get into your current job or field?
I was an IT Manager for almost a decade. I loved the coaching aspect, but really missed being more hands-on with technology. I knew it was time for a change when our company was going through a merger and my new boss told me that IT automation (the area that I managed) was a big waste of money. Yikes! I ended up becoming a Technical Account Manager at VMware, which was awesome, and I continued to get into more technical, consultative roles from there.
What’s a fun fact about you that not many people know?
I have a big mouth. Everyone knows everything!
What is your favorite activity or hobby that you enjoy outside of work?
I have a lot of hobbies. I could retire and just focus on my hobbies and never get bored. Most recently, I’ve enjoyed climbing ropes courses with my family, playing with RC cars, and working on old arcade games and pinball machines.
What is your best memory about working at Codefresh?
The get-togethers we have are a lot of fun. In particular, our expert-guided beer and wine tasting events have been a blast!
