What I love most about my work
I love working both with my colleagues at Performance Software and our customers. Every day is a new challenge and learning experience while working on multiple projects.
One thing everyone must know about Performance
I am in awe of how Performance Software consistently delivers on their commitments to their customers, whether it is services or products. There is no comparison, and it is recognized throughout the industry.
I climbed two of the “Seven Summits”; Mount Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft.) in Tanzania and Aconcagua (22,838 ft.) in Argentina.
