Fun or interesting fact about yourself: I am a musician. I started out playing the clarinet in elementary school and have since then moved on to learn various other instruments. I have performed in several concert bands and jazz bands playing different instruments such as the clarinet, alto saxophone, upright bass, and percussions (snare drums, toms, timpanis). In my spare time I enjoy teaching myself new instruments like the piano or the ukulele.
How did you hear about ITS? I first heard about ITS through a staff member here (Kao Saechao) who told me about his line of work and I immediately became interested in taking a position here.
Tell us about a notable instance when you gave or received help: At my home, whenever a family member needs help with a tech-related issue I’m usually the person they go to for assistance, whether it be something small like printing a document or something more complicated like troubleshooting an old computer that won’t function properly. I would say a notable time where I gave help to somebody was when I suggested revamping the management system for an on campus group. This group has a discord server where most of the chatting takes place as well as the coordinating of events. Towards the beginning of the fall semester (2018) we had a large influx of people joining our server and there were several issues that arose because of it. Our administrator had unfortunately become pre-occupied at the time with other matters, so I took it upon myself to offer help in the only way I could. I asked to become a moderator so that I may better help out all of our new members become acquainted with our server and the rules we have set in place. I suggested adding others as mods and this has drastically changed how we handle issues in our group.
Is there something specific you’d like to learn more about working at ITS? There is a lot I would like to learn about here. I do not have much experience working with A/V technologies so I’m interested in becoming proficient in terms of construction and operation of various machines. Something I would like to work on that is not technology-related however, is networking. I find that I sometimes struggle with finding the right way to communicate with other people, and it is something that I’m working on. Whether it be through the phone or in person, I want to better learn when it is appropriate to use formal and casual language and how I can come across in a professional and respectful manner.
