What is your favourite thing about working at Microserve?Without a doubt it’s the people, every single person, without exception, that I have had the good fortunate to work alongside have has been so great.
How rare it is to work with such a group of people who are mindful of each other and that share the common desire towards getting things done.
What is one piece of technology that you couldn't live without and why?
Such as I suppose would be the same for most people my phone is the one and only constant piece of technology that I must take with me everywhere I go. Sadly about a week ago I dropped it and broke the screen—devastating.

I don’t really have any big aspirations to travel anywhere else the world other than my yearly trip to Mexico, I’m a big fan of all inclusive.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I wanted to be a lot of things, race car driver (never go beyond go-karts though), motocross racer (still make it to the MX track on the weekends), rock star (no longer in a band but I still like to play both the guitar and drums).
What is something nobody at Microserve knows about you?
My daughter will be having her first child near the end of August so I guess that would make me a grandfather, does that make me old?
