When you were 5 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be Indiana Jones – Archaeologist and Adventurer. Raiders of the Lost Ark was just released, and I was immediately sold that Indiana had the best job in the world! Today, I consider myself the Indiana Jones of IT Staffing!
What’s your favorite piece of technology of all time?
It’s certainly a Love/Hate relationship at times but I’m going to say the Cell Phone. The overall capabilities of the modern cell phone are truly amazing. Who would have thought that a single device could be used for Computing, Internet, Camera, Video, Work, Personal, Social Media, Weather, TV, News, Games, Email, Text, and if there’s time left in the day you can actually call someone to say Hello!
If you could pick one celebrity or historical figure to have lunch with, who would it be?
