Here are somethings about me that you won’t find from watching my videos.
- 33 year old Father of 3
- Photography Enthusiast
- Originally from Chicago now I’m 90 miles west of Chicago(the boonies)
- From November 2014 – November 2015 I lost over 70lbs.
Now that you know more about me that you won’t necessarily see from my videos how about a little about my background in I.T. and why I make the videos that I do and talk about getting into Information Technology.
How I Started:
I first started my endeavors into I.T. by learning HTML and building websites. I did this from the time I was 15 years old up until I was about 20 years old. I got burned out very fast from web development and completely lost interest. This is when I began diving more into the technical and hardware side of computers and technology. Everyone assumed since I was a big nerd doing websites that I knew a lot about computers. This kind of jump started me into working on computers.
I began working for a small school as a pseudo I.T. Technician. Working on small issues and such. After this I began working for myself and one of my very good friends and we did consulting for a few years. In 2011 I got the great news that I was going to be a father. Consulting wasn’t going to cut it so I began the search and found a good job for a school district out here in the boonies where I am currently living. The school district had around 3,300 students, 150 staff members, and around 1,500 devices. I was in charge of 6 schools including the district office. After this I moved onto a bigger school that was roughly 3 times the size of the one I left. The high school that I was in charge of had 2,800 kids alone and 1,500 devices there as well. I also helped with the other 8 schools in this district. This totaled to over 10,000 students, 1,000 staff members, and over 5,000 devices. I left there and went to work for a fortune 500 company for a short while.
Last and Current Position:
Currently I am working for a Hospital as “Information Systems Technician” It’s a great job, and I work with absolutely amazing people. I am participating in a job where I make a difference and I’ve learned throughout my years that is what I find most important about my life. Anyone can be taught how to work on computers. Having a passion for helping people on the other hand isn’t something that can be taught as easily. I thrive on making my customer service skills a number one priority. Aside from that I truly enjoy the environment I am working in. It’s a constant battle to stay on top of things so there is almost never a dull moment. You wanna know more?
