What is the best thing about Resource Data for you?
For me, Resource Data’s great feature is the caliber of the people who work here. I’ve had great co-workers in the past, but they’re well outnumbered by the great co-workers I have at Resource Data. The corollary is that the company knows its employees are its wealth and works hard to keep me happy.
What are your roles/responsibilities at Resource Data (not job title)?
I’ve been guiding the technical side of Resource Data Anchorage’s growing IT infrastructure consulting business. In practice this means setting the tone for the quality of technical work that we do, designing complex new systems for our clients, working through difficult problems, and providing mentorship to other members of the team.
What is your favorite thing about your role?
That it’s a work in progress. Resource Data trusts its employees with a lot of autonomy, and it never stops moving. The combination means I’m never standing around waiting for decisions. I’m invested in what I do.
If you took a year off, what would you do?
A year means enough time to get lost somewhere: maybe volunteering in northern India or Nepal, with time off to go trekking. Or maybe build our next house.
What can you not live without?
Beer, skis, bikes, books, cold weather, and hot water.
