Thomas Denning originally wanted to be a Photographer, but after a “brief struggle with nerdom,” which he says he eventually lost, Tom graduated from Chapman University with a degree in Computer Information Systems in 2011. He’s been working in IT ever since and has a wealth of experience under his belt, including 2 years as a System Administrator for a Portland banking start-up. We’re grateful for Tom’s career change, because he stood out to us early on as a dependable and resourceful IT Engineer. His calm presence and competence make him a great teammate, but his decisiveness and tact make him a great leader. Less than 6 months after he was hired in 2015 Tom was promoted to Service Manager with unanimous approval from our customers and crew. He hasn’t lost his creative edge though. Tom still dabbles in photography, although his art is more likely to revolve around adorable baby photos these days. Tom and his wife, Becka, love taking their son, Anthony, on hikes and documenting every moment.
