I love challenges, and with running your own company, there are certainly more than a few. I also enjoy keeping fit and, as what seems to be customary with directors, I enjoy golf but don't play very well when I do.
I enjoy my work, especially talking to my customers and helping them with their business's IT solutions. Customer communication is the key to having a business relationship. Building good relationships with customers and keeping those customer's business successful is the key to Roswell's continued success.
Outside work is family time, however motorbike's, car's and DIY seem to eat into that. Not that I'm complaining as I love DIY, growing up with a father who was a Joiner kind of sealed my fate.
So after 18 years in the IT Industry there are still new challenges, and that's what I enjoy. Constant change means there are always new things to learn and work on. I'm not big on training sessions and prefer to get hands on with something in order to understand it. While the ability to remote connect to customers site's to resolve issues is fantastic, I still like to go onsite to catch up with customers.
Cars. Cars. Cars. They take up a lot of my free time… well, one in particular does. If I am not outside washing her all day, then I will be trying to modify her in some sort of way. I love the thrill and achievement of trying to do something that I don’t know how to, figuring it out and then showing it off while feeling victorious at my achievement. Driving fast around a track is such a great thrill and is something I would like to do more of.
After having a very keen interest in IT from high school, the next logical step was to go to college for two years and gain a HND in Computer Networking. After that, I was lucky enough to come across Roswell IT, where I have been since September 2012, and can see myself staying here for a long time to come. There is nothing better and fulfilling than going onsite to fix an issue a client is having and building a relationship with them. This assures they know you are going to complete the job to 100% of your ability whilst taking care and pride in your work.
