Team

Our Team

We are: cloud engineers, network gurus, and seasoned IT professionals. 

David

Managing Director

A visionary leader with a neverending supply of energy and ideas.

David, Managing Director

David isn’t big on titles, but technically speaking, he is our Managing Director. And founder. And owner. He’s the guy with the entrepreneurial spirit, the vision, and the will to make it all happen.

Although we sometimes tease David about our theory that he only sleeps about 45 minutes a night, he does get a lot done in a day. He also leverages one of his most critical skills for the leader of a technology company: bringing other people up. Several of our engineersdid not start off in tech. David identifies the best and brightest in a variety of fields (like bartending and construction!) and recognizes in them a solid work ethic and capacity to learn and grow.

While many technical people have a tendency towards introversion, David is a rare combination of being highly technical and a “people person.” He prides himself on leveraging technology in ways that other people don’t. 

David is the prototypical “small-town boy” who later moved to the Big City. He has lived in Denver for several years and enjoys the typical outdoor pursuits (like skiing) that Colorado’s favorable weather allows. He and his wife are the proud parents of three children. We’re betting that at least one of the three starts a company before the age of 10.

Random fact: David once lived in a building that previously housed a morgue.

Dan

Cloud Engineer

We tease him because he's chatty, but we respect him because he knows all the things.

Dan, Cloud Engineer

Wisconsin native. Seasoned Systems Architect. Engineer. Car guy.

These are just a few of the terms one might use to describe Dan, who joined the team in 2018. Dan brings with him a wealth of experience in cloud engineering, development, problem-solving, systems integration, and architecture planning and implementation. He prides himself on having the ability to view a technical challenge from many angles and finding the most efficient path to get from where you are to where you want to be.

Dan lives in Mukwonago, a suburb of Milwaukee, with his family. He and his wife are the proud parents of a son and daughter, both of whom are in college.

When he can peel himself away from his keyboard, Dan enjoys motorsports and motorsports engineering. Like many developers, he likes to know how things work - and that includes engines.

In addition to motorsports, Dan also enjoys travel, photography, boating, and downhill skiing.

Random fact: Dan’s favorite palindrome is RACECAR.

Jason

Senior Developer

Jason has one of the most valuable skills you can find in a senior developer: the ability to see the forest AND the trees. He sometimes knows the solution before you've even asked the question.

Jason, Senior Developer

Jason, who has 25+ years of experience in the IT game, is one of our senior developers and he knows all the things. Hardware, software, you name it - he’s what we call a Full Stack Developer. 

Although we like to tease Jason about his questionable sentence construction in emails, he actually earned his undergraduate degree in Journalism. He holds an MBA with a focus on project management. In addition to his technical titles, he also answers to the most important one of all: dad. Jason is a native of Indiana but has lived in Colorado for many moons.

Jason is motivated by a desire to do good work, pure and simple. He likes being able to build something that solves a problem or fills a need. When he’s not saving the world through good code, Jason enjoys skiing, mountain biking, acting, and basic woodworking.

Unnecessary piece of technology he admits to owning: VR Headset

Justin

IT Intern

After joining the Managed Clound Nines team, Justin quickly became our go-to guy for deployments, workstation troubleshooting, and much more. Just don't ask him for help too early in the morning; he's more of a night owl.

Justin, IT Intern

If you’ve made the mistake of thinking that Generation Z is unfocused or unprepared for the real world, Justin is here to let you know that the digital natives will run the planet sooner than later. Justin fills the role of IT Intern at Managed Cloud Nines, assisting with code deployments and cloud hosting tasks. A fast learner with a reputation for being highly dependable, he is conscientious and detail-oriented, which is great news for co-workers and clients alike.

Like many Managed Cloud Nines team members, Justin is innately curious and likes to know how things are constructed. He can build anything as long as there is a YouTube video on the topic. 

Justin is a Wisconsin native, but he currently lives on a ranch in Texas with his wife (and lots of cats and other animals). He and Kassidee often take in disabled cats for rehabilitation and/or long-term residence. Justin’s other hobbies include cinematography (he’s particularly interested in claymation), gaming, and listening to old-school rock. He’s a sucker for classic rock from artists like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and the Eagles. He loves museums so much that his wedding reception was held at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

Pet peeve: People who stand up on the plane as soon as it lands. Word!
