What motivates you to work hard?

Supporting my family and my love of technology and gadgets is my motivation. Or rather, the love of purchasing said technology and gadgets.

What’s something surprising about you?

I was an Assistant Chief of a volunteer fire department. I was a part of the department for 20 years. I recently retired to move to Quincy, Ill. Through that experience I’ve learned a great deal, but the most important thing I got out of it was being able to give back to and support my community during their worst times.

Can’t live without?

My Internet connection. Of course my family and friends are my obvious choice, but I’ll need that Internet connection for my work, relaxation, hobbies, etc. It’s scary how important that has become.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Always getting to see and be a part of the next new design and web technology. I’ve seen it evolve over many years and have always enjoyed guessing what would be next. I’ve been right and have been wrong about some things, but I am always excited to see it.

What would you sing at Karaoke night?

“Plush” by the Stone Temple Pilots

If you could only eat one meal of the rest of your life, what would it be?

Surf and turf.
