“I am an old-school computer geek who loves solving technical problems. It’s my nature to spend hours looking under every stone until I find a solution. I enjoy hanging out with the team on Fridays to go over our war stories. For relaxation, I love to spin on my Peloton bike, go for long walks with my wife, and chasing my grandson around my home until I drop.”
