Who had the biggest impact on your professional life thus far?
In my first job in the industry in 1998 one of our customers named Mike was sitting on a plaster bucket working in a suspect “datacenter”. He and I began chatting and then working side jobs cabling voice switches or whatever was needed. We worked together in some capacity for 17 years until I started with vXchnge. He was a great mentor and we remain good friends.
Looking back when you were 10 years old, what did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?
When I was 10, I was hoping to be a professional football, baseball player or golfer. I don’t think I’ll make the NFL or MLB but the Senior PGA tour is still an option, but not for 5 more years so I need to practice!
What is a topic or idea that you constantly find yourself pondering?
