One : How did your career path bring you to LT?

I had worked a few various IT related jobs over the years, all of which were in-house type positions. All were great learning experiences but I was limited in capacity and experience there. The position here with LT allows me a greater opportunity to have hands on experience and knowledge of a wide variety of different technology/IT related solutions and that is something I really enjoy.

Two : What’s your favorite thing about working at LT?

Overall I just enjoy my job. I enjoy working in IT and the guys I work with are great. We’re always there to help pick up the slack and assist if in a tough spot and it really helps take a lot of the stress out of the position.

Three : Tell us about yourself.

I grew up and live in Henderson. I am married and have two daughters, 21 and 15… about to be 22 and 16 in a few short months. I graduated from HCHS and went to Ivy Tech for my AAS in CIS.

Four : What does life look like away from the office?

I enjoy being outside cooking on the smoker or grill during the summertime. I’m an avid college basketball fan so November – April I spend most evenings watching it.  I play a few computer games, mostly multiplayer online and have some friends and relatives I play with regularly. I spend a lot of time with my family around the house, we don’t get out and do a whole lot but we’re together.

Four and a Half : If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be and why?

25… Old enough to do pretty much anything I wanted to do and still get a discount on my insurance.
