Where is your hometown?
Effort, PA - Right in the heart of the Pocono Mountains
What did you do before working here?
My first career was in hospitality. I was a restaurant manager until I decided to get back in school and pursue a career in the tech world.
What do you like most about your job?
This job has been and continues to be a massive learning experience for me, which is an amazing thing, but the best part is definitely the people I work with. Everyone is so warm and the culture is very relaxed despite the fact that everyone is working hard. It's an ideal place for a first internship.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I'd say the most surprising thing to many is that prior to getting back in school I was dedicating my life to pursuing a career as a wine professional. I was committing so much time to training to become a certified Sommelier and entrenching myself for the long run in the world of wine and hospitality. Soon enough I realized that the world of wine is much better experienced from my perspective as a hobby, and now I collect fancy grape juice.
What do you enjoy doing when you're not at work?
If it's not exploring wine, it's cooking, playing guitar, or getting really competitive at the ping-pong tables!
