We are so excited to welcome Michael Risher to our I.T. team! Michael is currently working on getting his Computer Science degree at Perimeter College. We like to shine the spotlight on the new faces of East West and properly introduce them. Here are "5 Questions" with Michael to get to know him better:
- What did you do before joining East West? How did your path lead you here?
Before East West, I worked as inventory and valet at a Porsche dealership here in Atlanta. My major is Computer Science, currently at Georgia Perimeter College, so I was always looking for an opportunity to get into the field. Ever since I was little I was always on a computer, making I.T. right up my alley. Fortunately, I learned about the opening at East West, thanks to Charlie, and here I am!
- Tell us a little about your role at East West Manufacturing and what you do…
I’m working in the I.T department as the I.T Support Technical Staff. I help keep all the computers running as well as learning the database systems.
- What do you enjoy the most about working at East West?
Well, first off, Lorrie has made me feel very welcome here at East West. Thanks, Lorrie! It feels like a team here, and I enjoying the challenges of I.T, because you never know what’s going to happen!
- If you had a super power, what would it be?
Being able to teleport would be pretty sweet. No need to sit on airplanes for long hours, just boom, there!
- What is one of your favorite quotes?
Every strike brings me closer to the next home run. –Babe Ruth
