Brian brings 23 years of working in either the IT field and/or Customer Service. Brian’s first computer was a Commodore 64, playing games like Bards Tale and Lode Runner. Brian says that being a part of Information Technology isn’t about being a computer geek or nerd but about an opportunity to be someone’s hero. It may simply be a rumor, but some say at night he takes on a secret identity and may very well actually be a superhero. We do know however, that he performs the role of a superhero for our clients. It may simply be at the rate of speed at which he attends to their needs, or perhaps because he puts on a mask as he heads out the door. Next time your printer wont print, your screen goes blue or you lost that file your boss needed printed and on his desk by 3pm, you just might need a hero, you just might need Brian.
