Hi! My name is Joe Massi. I’ve been with Thinsolutions for a little over 3 years now and currently work as a Help Desk Analyst in the Managed Services Group. I’ve been in the technology industry for 9 years and have really enjoyed it. I learned about computers while in college at the University of Akron getting my associates degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology. I graduated from Akron in December 2000 and the following May got my first IT job. So much for that expensive 2 year degree that took me 7 years to get! Why did it take me 7 years to get a 2 year degree? Well, I was working landscaping during the day and then driving to Akron at night to take classes.
I’m married to my wonderful wife Paula and we have 2 kids, Briana age 5 and Michael age 5 months (as of the end of November). We live in Chardon Ohio in our new home.In my spare time I like to, umm…uhh…well if I had spare time I’m sure I could find something fun to do.
One thing that people would never peg me for doing is skydiving. It’s true. I went skydiving, even though I have a fear of heights. It was the summer of ’99 and I jumped not once, not twice but 10 times!! Go figure. It was awesome though. The biggest adrenaline rush I’ll ever have!
