Michael

Michael
VP of Operations

Michael's formal title is VP of Operations because he's the guy who keeps everything in our shop running, from the coffee makers to the computers. But that doesn't tell even half the story. Put it this way: Anytime anyone needs anything, he's the first guy they go to.

Michael is the most unique personality in our cast of characters, both for his ever-changing hairstyles and varied outside interests. Michael is a confusing mix of zombie apocalypse prepper, antique uranium glass collector and devout lover of fluffy kittens. He’s also a fan of horror movies, his laser engraver and deafening bass music.

Michael earned an A+ Certification and holds a BSBA in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida. If you would like to see his antics, creative solutions for problems you didn’t even know you had, or extensive knife collection, be sure to ask him for his YouTube channel!

Brittany

DJ
Client Account Manager

As a Client Account Manager, DJ is tasked with managing client accounts and relationships, preparing quotes and executing equipment ordering. DJ also fields calls to our busy Help Desk because she has extensive experience in dispatch and customer service.

DJ came to Florida with her young son in 2019 to visit family and never returned to her native Queens, New York! She picked up the nickname DJ in middle school because her friends couldn’t pronounce her given name of Dejanee with the proper French inflection. So, Dejanee became DJ to her friends and a popular song at the time titled “Go DJ” cemented her newly minted moniker.

DJ exudes all the optimism and enthusiasm expected of an Aquarius, which continues to bewilder and amaze her teammates. When she’s not in the office, DJ is busy answering an endless barrage of questions from her precocious seven-year-old son Aaron. DJ enjoys reading, cooking and delights in the occasional espresso martini.

Brittany

Daniel

Daniel
Network Engineer

Daniel’s specialties include providing expert workstation and server support including Microsoft 365 business implementation, SharePoint Online infrastructure and design, and systems automation using Robotic Process Automation.

He has over a decade of industry experience and some mad SEO skills. Before joining I.T. Solutions, Daniel worked as a data security specialist and a computer repair technician. We’ve tried calling him Dan, oh Danny boy, and Danny Bag of Donuts, but he regards these as illogical because his name is Daniel.

Always the intellectual, Daniel puts the deep in deep V-neck t-shirt. Since he works entirely remote, we never see more than his top half on camera. We assume he’s wearing jorts to compliment that daily deep V and perfectly manicured facial stubble. It also appears Daniel subsists wholly on a diet of bulletproof coffee, insanely loud celery crunching and air.
