Why do you enjoy working at vXchnge?
I enjoy finding solutions to customer problems. They don't know what their next step is, and neither do I. Finding the solution that works and getting it implemented in time to meet the customer requirement is very rewarding for me.

What's a quote that you find very influential and apply to your everyday life?
“...any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.” - John F. Kennedy

Busy weekends are a necessity sometimes. But if you stack up too many of them in a row, there's going to need to be an entire weekend on the couch with Netflix. Most weekends I do still try to get up at a reasonable time so I can enjoy a nice breakfast with my morning coffee, which I don't get time for during the week.
