Why NetCraftsmen? In my years leading up to and working for NetCraftsmen. I have not seen the level of knowledge that is currently in place anywhere else in the in IT field. We all work together to find the correct way to design, build and maintain infrastructure with the customer in mind.


My favorite part of the job is that I have a great team and consider them family. From day one they have been there no matter what my questions have been and have been able to provide answers that are not only thought provoking but make you work for the answer.


So, to get ahold me outside of the normal work schedule. You will find me at one of my children’s (I have 4) sporting events. I also spend a considerable amount of time volunteering as an advisor to a youth group called DeMolay.
