Meet a Codefresher

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 a summer hire program, 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 ended up becoming a Technical Account Manager at VMware, which was awesome, and from there I continued to get into more technical, consultative roles.

What’s a fun fact about you that not many people know?

I’ve lived in 4 different countries.

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 virtual get-togethers we have are a blast! My favorite one so far was an expert-guided beer tasting event!
