WHY NETCRAFTSMEN?

To be part of something that feels more than a job but an opportunity to be surrounded by like minded individual and extremely talented people who are passionate about what they do.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?

Challenges are always fun and in an ever-evolving industry every customer engagement isa personal challenge to test my knowledge, my ability to solve problems and most importantly an opportunity to learn something new every day.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

My favorite time of the year is grilling time, it does not matter if it’s a cold winter day or a hot summer night there’s nothing I enjoy more than throwing some steaks on the fire and enjoy some good food and company. When I’m not doing that you’ll find me reading or watching old boxing fights or any other combat sport I might catch online.
