How long have you been at Fermilab?
I started as a part-time employee the summer of 1969 on my 17th birthday. You had to be 17 to work out here at the time. It was the end of my junior year of high school.

I worked here again the following summer and then found out there were openings at receiving. So I went to work in that department full-time. That was May 1971, and I’ve been here ever since.

What do you do as a data center specialist in computing?
I’m kind of a one-stop shop where computing folks can call with whatever need they have. It’s a pretty broad range: tape robot system installation, fire suppression systems, deliveries, small construction jobs.
