What is your favorite thing about working at HMB?

The people.  I've met exceptionally talented people that are great to work with and spend time with outside of work.  

What advice would you give someone thinking of starting a career in technology?

Just do it!  If you wait until you're "ready" you're never going to start.  

What's the most important thing you've learned as a consultant?

Aside from technology, the most important thing for a consultant to understand is your client.  Always start by understanding their business and listening to truly understand their challenges.
