What might people around campus see you doing when we return?
Around campus…wandering the campus (not aimlessly) between offices. Maybe at the Help Desk once or twice. Helping in other offices at times with issues. At the fitness/wellness center around 11:30 a.m.
What is the most common phrase you say in your position?
I’m on it.
What is the best tip you can give someone?
Being positive and listening. Usually when someon is asking for my help they are nearing an end maybe in terms of patience, they have a deadline or maybe it’s just their comprehension of the data/application. Just be positive and let them explain (maybe even vent some) what it is they need. Being positive I think just reassures them that we are going to accomplish it and get through it, there’s no shame in asking, and let me just be another tool to get your job done.
Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?
Yes I guess. My wife would say my ability to store what she calls “useless trivia” is impressive. Especially my sports knowledge (I am a bit of a sports junkie).
What is your go-to karaoke song?
Well I am pretty up front in admitting that I am what you call tone-deaf. I love music and I even learned to play a bit of a guitar many years ago-all of which I forgot. If people were listening to my karaoke song it would need to be an acoustic version for their sake. If nobody was listening though…I’m Not Okay by My Chemical Romance.
