What fictional character do you most identify with and why?

Jeeves (PG Wodehouse) - that fictional character is like a role model for me. Jeeves’s mastery over a vast range of subjects from philosophy, poetry, science, history, car maintenance etc. never failed to amuse me.  I used to be a diehard user of askjeeves.com, a search engine for which Jeeves used to be the mascot (currently just ask.com).

How would your teammates/colleagues describe you?

I asked and one colleague said, “driven, positive, inquisitive, inventive, invested, intensely focused, and Inspector Gadget, wait...scratch that, Supreme Master and Commander of the Technical Gadget Universe.”

What do you love most about living in Colorado?

I love the four seasons that Colorado offers. Each season is rich and offers different activities. This brings in a lot of variety to life.

What’s a little known fact about yourself?

I used to be a hardcore Mechanical Engineer and worked in a Cast Iron Foundry for a year. This motivated me to pick-up the computer field.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Running a successful vacation rental brand with a group of talented engineers that work remotely and efficiently is something I am very proud off.
