What does your average day look like?

One of the first things I’ll do when I get into the office each morning is pull up our monitoring system to make sure there are no outages or issues. After that, I usually check e-mail and service requests. Other than the few things I do the same each morning, I don’t really have an average day. Some days are spent working on a single issue or project, while other days are spent working on a wide variety of things.

The Cisco VoIP phones are the primary system I support. I do the majority of my work from my desk while Gary is my counterpart out in the field. I also do what I can to support our network field techs, Eric and Greg, whenever they need assistance. Another role of mine is a backup to our Network Security Engineer, Mark. The main systems I work on with Mark are our firewalls and web filter.

What are your favorite things about working for St. Vrain?

The team I work with at DTS is great. Not only are they a lot of fun, but everyone loves what they do and we work hard to support our students and staff. The most rewarding part of the job is knowing the difference we make in so many lives by providing reliable technology that is far better than what most districts have.

On top of the great people and rewarding work, the benefits here are great, so that’s a big plus!

Optional: What are your interests or activities outside of St. Vrain.
I had to point out the great benefits in the question above because I’m actually a pretty big personal finance geek. I love deals and am always looking for ways to “hack” our budget. Having great benefits at my job makes the personal finance geek in me very happy! A lot of my free time is spent reading articles, blogs, books, and forums on personal finance and investing.
I also really enjoy travel (who doesn’t?). My wife and I usually have some big trip to look forward to. Along with travel, I enjoy photography as it’s a great way to share our experiences with others.
