“What brought you to Manchester?”
“[My wife] Jenny graduated from here in 2005 and started working here shortly after, and a Help Desk position became available. I wasn’t exactly enjoying my job where I was, so I applied, and the rest is history.”

“What did you study in college?”
“I was a Criminal Justice major, and realized that wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do. I fell upon a job in IT and just learned on the fly. I learned from doing.”

“What are you involved in on campus?”
“I’m a member of the Technology Committee, I’ve participated in SOC, the Staff Organizational Committee, and I play in the Faculty/Staff-Student softball game every year.”

“What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?”
“I love sports. My children are involved in things now so we’re always into something. So it’s generally what their hobbies are and what their interests are. But I like electronics and sports, and just spending time with family.”

“What is your favorite memory from your time at Manchester?”
“Probably just walking around when Jenny was a student. We started dating when she was a junior, so I’ve seen both sides. 12 or 13 years ago, if you told me I’d be doing what I’m doing now, I would’ve said no way. But I am so, so glad I am. I never would’ve thought, but I’m glad it worked out this way.”
