This month, the spotlight falls on ODEE employee, Josh Jennings. As a manager of classroom technology, Josh can be found updating over 350 collaborative learning spaces (AND responding to incidents on top of regular maintenance). Josh has been with Ohio State since 2000, and when he’s away from campus, he can be found golfing, reading Stephen King and raising two future American Ninja Warriors. Learn more about Josh in this month’s employee spotlight.
This month, the spotlight falls on telecom engineer Jeff Geren. This former target loader at a shooting range had dreams of being an on-air radio personality. However, he got turned on to tech by a PC game and has stuck with the field ever since. Jeff joined the OCIO in 2002, and the work/life balance the university provides has him hooked. This father of one can be found at TNC (when he’s not lunching at Raising Cane’s), but he’d rather be unplugged, relaxing at the beach. Read on to learn more about Jeff.
This month the spotlight falls on web application developer Daniel Sabatino. This former IT Service Desk agent was always drawn to technology, and he struck a career path that led him through multiple IT positions at the university. Today, Daniel is a member of the shared services team, most known for combining the OCIO and ODEE org charts. Daniel is a fan of traveling, camping and craft beer…unless I heard that from his identical twin! Find out more about Daniel (at least I think it’s him…) in this month’s employee spotlight.
This February we’re showing our #BuckeyeLove for a new hire in this month’s employee spotlight. Senior Security Analyst Becky Mayse comes to the OCIO with a passion for information security and a fascination with technology. This former juggler and auctioneer can be found in Baker Systems Engineering talking to stakeholders and spreading awareness about phishing. Outside of the office, you can find her passing messages via ham radio—no, really! Although she’d rather be in the tropics or Paris, Becky is enjoying her new role at The Ohio State University.
This January, Systems Administrator David Chuha is in the spotlight. A Columbus native and Buckeye for Life, he spends his days in the OCIO improving infrastructure and working with a variety of our teams. A computer lover since childhood, David has been enjoying the daily challenges and ongoing projects he has been working on for the past year. When he’s not working all day or through the night during a maintenance window, he is likely to Netflix and chill or head out to Lindey’s for a nice dinner. Learn more about David Chuha with this month’s Employee Spotlight.
This December, the spotlight shines on Java developer Richard Atwood. This former equestrian has spent over 10 years in the OCIO, making people’s jobs easier by designing intuitive applications. He loves helping users solve their problems at work, and the fixing continues at home where he can be found tinkering and renovating around the house. Learn more about Richard with this month’s employee spotlight.
This November, we are highlighting financial analyst John Paver. John has been with the OCIO for over a decade, and this former hay baler is happy to be using his brain muscles instead of his back muscles on a daily basis. This spotlight employee loves getting to the root of problems and being able to solve them for our customers. Although he’d rather be a part of his nephew’s pit crew or off racing down the ski slopes, John can be found at ADC tackling the big issues and major upgrade projects. Learn more about the adventurous John Paver.
The spotlight this September shines on Associate Director of Identity & Access Management, Rich Nagle. Relatively new to the OCIO, Rich is busy keeping university IDs secure while learning the basics of being a Buckeye. Indiana Jones he is not, but swimming with sharks may be enough to qualify Rich as some type of action hero. Outside of the office, he enjoys spending time with family and many fish. Continue learning about this new member of the OCIO team.
This August we turn the spotlight on to Senior Help Desk Analyst Extraordinaire, Justin Eyer. This soccer loving sword enthusiast tends to wear many hats, in and out of the office. Among the many duties Justin tackles in the OCIO, one of his favorites is molding his student workers and preparing them for the future. Learn more about this well-rounded and trustworthy (according to Justin) individual in this month’s Employee Spotlight.
