Jason is a cool dude. His work as a dad of four, Firefighter (rescuing cats with the jaws of life), Medical First Responder & I.T. Extraordinaire is fueled by a strict diet of Mountain Dew, Nacho Cheese Doritos and Gummy Bears. He approaches all aspects of home and life with a desire to problem-solve, optimize, and improve – often giving “every waking moment” toward finding a resolution (in the words of his wife).
Jason closely identifies with PeopleIT’s value of Small Steps, Big Adventure – especially the call to approach work as a playground and not a battlefield. Combining this with his expert problem-solving skills, he is committed to minimizing frustration for end-users that encounter I.T. issues with a fun and exploratory mindset, creating opportunities for education and solutions for all.
In his “down-time,” Jason enjoys spending time with his kids in their basement/office, experimenting and tackling new projects* or optimizing the home wi-fi while they color and puzzle. *For a complete list of Jason’s project base and expertise see below
If you catch him outside PeopleIT and his home office he may be adventuring to the family cabin, one of Michigan’s incredible state parks or surprise tripping to Great Wolf Lodge. Though be warned, if you strike up a conversation he may try to entice you to the Dark Side of the Force.
As promised, here is the expansive and impressive arsenal of Jason’s I.T. work:
Design and management of large-scale I.T. infrastructure solutions. Hyper-Converged server deployments with VMware and Hyper-V supporting both Microsoft and Linux operating systems. Network administration leveraging both Cisco and Meraki solutions including DMVPN, next-generation firewalls with HA failover, high capacity wireless, and supporting unified communications platforms. Jason prefers a CLI to a GUI and he is our go-to PowerShell expert. In addition to his experience managing on-premises infrastructure, Jason has spent time in “the cloud” helping organizations navigate complex Azure and Office365 migrations. Are you impressed yet? We certainly are.
