Jeff brings 15 years of IT experience to Mediaspace. Everyone knows that his favorite phrase is "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?" During his career, he has made a point to focus on infrastructure management, disaster recovery planning and auditing. Understanding technology pain points within the company allows him to deploy solutions which make work easier and more efficient for employees. In addition to technology he has a passion for cars and his tortoiseshell cat named Muffins who loves to play and snuggle.
