David and his wife fell in love with Oregon and moved here from Alabama in 2019. They love everything from the rainforests, mountains, and coast, to the high desert and redwoods. Hiking, camping, fishing, photography, and everything in the outdoors is a staple of their household activities. Most weekends you can find them in the woods looking for waterfalls, foraging mushrooms, taking pictures, or looking for agates.
David’s interest in computers started in high school. A friend of his introduced a network and server system he built as a hobby. He fell in love with technology and decided to pursue a career in IT. Since then, he’s worked in varying systems management roles with companies. These ranged in size from 5 employees to as many as 10,000+ employees and multiple datacenters across North America. Working in those diverse environments allowed him to learn different technologies and fine tune his skills.
He loves working at Velox Systems because we have a very talented and passionate team which makes him strive to learn new things. David also enjoys the diversity in technologies we manage and the cohesive team relationships.
