Tell us a little about yourself.

I was born (in 2000) and raised in Dallas.  I got into I.T. as a kid because of the amount of technology I would interact with on a daily basis whether it be TVs, consoles, computers, printers, or accessories. Since most of my family are not very tech savvy, I've been their handy man when it comes to setting anything up and since then I've loved helping people with their I.T. requests. I have developed a passion for I.T. and health ( weird combination, I know).

Why did you choose to work at Velo?

I chose to work with Velo because of the environment and vibe I picked up from the company right from the start in the interview phase when I did my research on the company and talked with Taylor. I really felt welcome and the morals and values this company have really align with my personal values.

What do you consider your greatest strength?

My greatest strength I would say is probably my perseverance to help others that I know are in need. I genuinely find it satisfying to help others with their problems and like to offer my help in any possible manner to come up with a solution that satisfies those who are in need. Especially when I know a solution to their problem off the top of my head. I like to go by the saying that goes "treat others the way you would like to be treated" and like to make myself as available as possible to those who require assistance with anything.
