Shane Cooper brings an upbeat, can-do, energetic mentality to all that he does, and we are so happy to have him as part of our team. We asked Shane, a systems engineer, a few questions to get to know him and to better find out what he’s all about.
Where Do You Live?
“I live in Harare, Zimbabwe, which is the capital and most populous city of Zimbabwe in Africa. I was born here and grew up in this beautiful, metropolitan area that is located in the north-eastern part of the country in the Mashonaland region.”
Where Did You Attend School?
“I attended Species College, in Zimbabwe”
What Turned You On To Tech?
“As a kid, my Dad worked for a soap factory in Harare and I would visit him everyday after school and spent time in the technical department. This is where I first saw how an IPX network could link and share files and more importantly, I could play the game Doom. This exposure became an itch I could never seem to scratch. Today, more than 15 years later I still love going down the technology rabbit hole looking for answers.”
Why Do You Enjoy Work?
“Currently, I am doing what I love and every day does not feel like work but a way to improve my favorite hobby. Who could ask for more?”
What’s Your Favorite Aspect of Technology?
“I love the daily challenge technology brings. Most people can plan what they are going to do in a day, for me, it’s something new every day.”
What Can’t You Live Without?
“My wonderful girlfriend of 12 years and of course, my cat, Snowy.”
