Q: What interests you most about IT?
A: I grew up working on computers and cars with my older brother. I also realized I loved problem solving by fixing our families computers so that I could play more video games haha. That directly translates to IT. I like making things work, and helping others figure out how to get it to work too.
Q: What is your favorite work memory from Jones IT?
A: During a client’s office move we were helping set up a brand new office. It was completely empty, except for a giant figure of Maui from the movie, Moana, that was hanging from the ceiling. It was so random, but we loved it.
Q: What is one of your favorite things/ passions outside of work?
A: If I’m not at work, I’m probably doing one of two things, rock climbing or working on my car, a Subaru WRX.
Q: Any advice for aspiring IT consultants?
A: The recipe to success is patience + perseverance. You have to be able to see a job through, even when it means trying 100 different things. Tech skills are easier to teach. But having the patience, perseverance, and intrinsic desire to solve a problem using different resources is key.
Q: Best advice for start-ups/small businesses looking to improve their current IT setup?
A: Two factor authentication! Look it up if you don’t know what it is. It’s super easy, anybody can set it up and it protects your email accounts. For a small company, your emails have almost all your vital information. It’s information worth protecting.
