"I love the challenges this job presents. There’s a lot of overlap between the strategic thinking in health sciences and in computer science. The best thing is that no one path leads to the correct answer, which makes room for discovery.
"I also love to exercise and write music. Being an Army Reservist holds me accountable to a healthy lifestyle and gives me a different perspective on life, which helps with creativity."
Neil is a Lander University graduate with a degree in Music Business. He has been a keyboardist for many bands such as The Glands, Shonna Tucker, and Elf Power. Neil obtained his A+ certification last year and is now studying for his Network+.
"Growing up surrounded by music, I like to think networking and music are similar; frequencies traveling the airwaves connecting people all over the planet.
"I appreciate the team approach at Athens Micro where co-workers are friendly and quick to answer questions.
"When I’m not working or sleeping, I’m usually playing music. My second job is playing piano at a Unitarian church and I also enjoy writing and recording with my band, Golden Eels. Before becoming a NOC engineer here at Athens Micro, I worked in a restaurant for 20 years and still enjoy cooking at home. I come from a large family in South Carolina, and visiting them is always fun."
Dan recently graduated from Valdosta State University where he studied theater, directed a play, and served as a simulated patient for the nursing program, all while contributing to his family’s business, The Crooked Limb, as a woodworker. Dan is now applying his previous experience as a quality control technician and tech troubleshooter as a member of the Athens Micro team.
“I have always loved computers and look forward to a career in technology. Outside of work, I spend a lot of time working on my computer. I consider it to be a functional and ever-evolving piece of art.”
