Justin Graeff

Network Engineer II

What certifications do you hold? I hold certifications in Microsoft and VMware

When did you start working at ITR? I started at IT Resource WAY back in 2011.  Wow, I’m old.

Tell us something your colleagues don't know about you. I used to do commercials for the Children’s Miracle Network.  Not sure why I didn’t continue a career in television…

What's the most interesting job you've ever had that was not IT related? It was short lived, but I used to drive my Grandma around for errands. It sure was interesting.

What was the last book you read? I don’t usually read too many books, but I read a lot of IT related articles or blogs.

What's one thing you can't live without? Surprisingly enough, it’s not my phone. I probably can’t live without staying up-to-date on technology. I have that need to always see what’s coming out, what’s changing, and what’s going away!

If you could meet one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? Definitely Bill Gates. I admire what he has done for modern computing and how his foundation helps people all over the world.

What's your favorite movie of all time? I absolutely love Airplane!. Each time I watch it, I find something I missed from before.

What's the best place you've ever travelled to? Down to Mexico on my honeymoon.  Such a wonderful place to visit.

What do you consider to be your greatest success or proudest moment in life so far? My greatest success is my family! My wife, dog, and now my son, plus all the things we have built together.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received? I think the greatest piece of advice I have ever received was to try and not let everything get to you.  Take every day one at a time and slow down, no need to rush.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? That’s tough to remember. I honestly think I wanted to do what my Dad did, whatever it was that he was doing. Turns out, I did go down that same road! While we may not have the exact jobs, we’re in the same field.
