When did you join the CWH team?
What brought you to CWH?
I’ve wanted to live in Canada for a couple of years now. When I heard of the opportunity to work as a Data Centre Technician at a Canadian web hosting company I jumped at the offer.
What was your first impression of CWH?
Everyone was professional, friendly, smart, and flexible. These are great characteristics which I find many other companies lack.
Who was your favourite superhero growing up? Why
I watched a lot of superhero shows as a kid so I didn’t have one favourite hero. I liked Superman for his nobility, Batman for his intelligence, Spiderman for his wit, and Gambit for his character.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I never wanted to grow up. By the time adulthood came knocking I chose computers because it was the industry I could relate to the best.
What is one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t yet?
I’ve always wanted to go paragliding. The thought of sailing through the sky is appealing to me. I think the view would also be nice.
What’s one thing you want everyone to know about you?
I appreciate art. I find human creativity fascinating. I’m particularly fond of other people’s music and paintings, but I always like to hear an interesting story too.
What is your favourite website? Why?
At the moment, my favourite website is Reddit because of the memes.
What book are you currently reading?
What is the nerdiest thing about you?
My passion for video games/esports.
What is one unusual or interesting thing about you?
I like chocolate milk.
What is your favourite thing about being part of the CWH team?
The people around and above me are all sensible and approachable. Liking and trusting your team is incredibly important to me.
What is your favourite thing about working in the tech and web hosting industry?
I like hearing about industry news. Since I have an interest in the industry it is nice to watch it develop.
What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you since working at CWH?
Working at our data centres has been an interesting experience. We have a really cool team of technicians, and getting time at the data centre gives me better insight into how the company works.
What is your favourite thing about being a Data Centre Technician?
My job isn’t streamlined. The job forces me to think outside the box. It’s the most complex job I’ve ever had. I’m required to be aware of everything from the voltage being fed to devices to policies and compliance.
