What is your job at ITS?

Senior Enterprise Application Architect, which means I'm involved with many of the enterprisey applications ITS runs for the university (such as connectEd and our Datatel Colleague ERP system).

question marksIf someone gave you a set of rockets, what would you shoot into space?

Myself, provided I had a way to get back down again in once piece...

If you could use any mode of transportation you wanted to get to work every day, how would you get here?

A Star Trek transporter would be nice, but since they haven't been invented yet how about a helicopter?  I could park it outside my office window on the “patio”.

Who do you think is the toughest cartoon character and why?

I'll have to go with Scratchy the cat (from Itchy & Scratchy).  No matter what that mouse does to him, he keeps coming back for more.

If you were an elf in Santa’s workshop, what toy would you specialize in making?

I'd probably be making the latest and greatest new techno gadgets at the top of everyone's list. 

What is the first thing you do when you wake up on Christmas morning?

Well when I was younger I shared a room with my brother, so we'd get up early on Christmas morning and sneak out to get our stockings then bring them back to our room and wait for everyone else to wake up.  Now that I'm older, the stocking still tends to be the first thing I go for.
