Our team at talech is as diverse as they come. Spanning the globe from Boise, ID to Dublin, Ireland, our employees have a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. We are musicians, knitters, and basketball players. We’ve worked as waiters at chain restaurants and in tech support. But despite our differences, we all have one thing in common: our journey has brought each of us to talech.

A. It varies day to day. I do a lot of demos and write KB articles. After my coffee or Red Bull of course.
Q. Tell us about the best vacation you have ever gone on.
A. Went to the Bahamas for a week and stayed at Atlantis Resort. I loved it because I was able to hang out on the water slides, go scuba diving, go walking with sharks, and hang out in an endless river.
Q. What hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
A. I have a bunch of hobbies outside of work. I actually moved to Idaho so I’d have more time and freedom to go get lost on 4×4 trails in my Montero. However, I couldn’t live without bodies of water nearby so I continue visiting the lakes/rivers to jet ski and wake board. Those are my biggest passions.
