What got you interested in technology originally. Is there a story behind it?

Growing up I always enjoyed taking things apart to understand how they really worked. In high school our school offered a television production track. We would put on a TV show each morning for the school and I was able to learn various aspects of technology from television cameras to computer based editing systems. When I entered college as a media productions major, I found that it wasn’t the right fit for me so I decided to change to a business track and entered the school of management at UB for management information systems.

What is one of your hobbies outside what you do at I-Evolve?

Outside of I-Evolve, I enjoy being able to spend time with my wife and daughter. I’m also a huge baseball fan and play on a softball league. I am a die-hard Boston Red Sox fan too!

What has been a big change in technology you’ve seen since you started working?

The biggest change in technology is virtualization. It is truly amazing that we have been able to consolidate so much into so little and decrease our footprint.

Can you share any success stories of something you’ve done for an I-Evolve customer that you’re particularly proud of the results?

One success story that comes to mind was for a customer whose environment was very old and inefficient. Their environment was not allowing them to perform their jobs to their full capacity and we were able to transform their environment. With virtualization and moving them onto the cloud, their issues were resolved. They now have a stable environment which allows for much greater productivity.

Meet The Team : Nate

I have been working for I-Evolve for 3 years now and learned a great deal over that time. I started here with a strong background in end user support and system administration.  Over that time my technical knowledge base has expanded significantly allowing me to support a wide variety of technologies. These include Microsoft Servers, wireless technologies, networking, virtualization, disaster recovery and backup solutions.

What got you interested in technology originally. Is there a story behind it?
I was first interested in computers when I took a programming class in High School. I began tinkering around with everything related to them and took an interest in web design. I became the person everyone came to for help with computer problems. I have been have been doing it ever since.

What is one of your hobbies outside what you do at I-Evolve?
One of my hobbies is running. I am a member of two local running clubs and run in multiple races every year. I also enjoy traveling and find going for a long run around a new city is a great way to see things you normally wouldn’t.

What has been a big change in technology you’ve seen since you started working?
The advancement in mobile technologies has been incredible. The computing power, battery life, screen resolutions and applications have advanced so much in a short amount of time. There are so many things you can do from just your phone that I would not have imagined being possible even 5 years ago.

Can you share any success stories of something you’ve done for an I-Evolve customer that you’re particularly proud of the results?
I was able to setup a wireless network that covered the entire facility for a customer. With this network I was able to provide an assortment of wireless solutions to improve efficiency and add flexibility their manufacturing process.
