Robert started out working in Graphic Arts around 1999 and then moved into Information Technology. He is mostly self-taught and says he cannot help but to feed the need to always learn about technology. Robert holds industry certifications from CompTIA, Cisco, Cyberoam.

What got you interested in technology originally. Is there a story behind it?
As a kid I always enjoyed taking electronic devices apart and making other things from them. I spent a lot of time working on RC cars and computers. After working with MS DOS and BASIC I was hooked on the PC. From that point I dove into computer networking and just followed my interests.

What is one of your hobbies outside what you do at I-Evolve?
I enjoy getting out in the woods and riding four wheelers with the family. It is nice to get outside and camp or fish. I also like to tinker with electronics and two-way radios. One project I started at home is an automation system using a Raspberry Pi and using it to control lights and things around the house.

What has been a big change in technology you’ve seen since you started working?
I think the biggest change in technology that I have seen is that the tech toys and computers have made it into everyone’s home. The Internet has gone from an experiment to a connection to every household. So much information is available at our fingertips.

Can you share any success stories of something you’ve done for an I-Evolve customer that you’re particularly proud of the results?
At one of my previous employers I was involved in moving their NOC and data center to a new facility. A lot of effort went into wiring, configuring equipment and installing new hardware. For me, working on a project like that and being involved from an empty building to a finished data center was amazing.
