Staff Software Engineer/Academic Initiative, System z
Years in IT—
My First Mainframe Job—
Build and Installation of System z Products
My favorite mainframe memory—
As the new Project Lead for the Master the Mainframe Contest in the U.S. and Canada, I get to work with students that are passionate about learning enterprise systems technologies. Spending personal time with them at events and seeing how excited they are about their careers brings me such joy and hope for the future of the mainframe. In addition, I get to work with some of the most brilliant professors around the world. Their enthusiasm with working with these students is incredible. I don't just get to have a career with IBM; I get to have a blast with these wonderful people, and form relationships that I can keep close to my heart for years to come!
