While working at Creative Communications and Consulting, as a VAR we tested and released Ruffdogs’ products, and depended on them for support. Garret and my relationship grew, and when I outgrew the company I was working for, he offered me the position of a lifetime, and I took it.I was offered the position on a Friday, and left Pennsylvania and headed for Colorado on the following Monday. Garret as a friend and a boss never let me down. I spent the next 18 months growing as a technician, and everything I learned while on projects working for Garret have proven invaluable to me. He gave me the chance of a lifetime, and helped to turn me into the administrator that I am today. Thanks to Garret I had the opportunity to work with technologies that continue to help me and the company I work for to this day, saving us tens of thousands of dollars in licensing by going with Linux, Asterisk, and other FOSS alternatives. If given the opportunity, I’d work for or with Garret again, as nobody before or since has seen the potential in me and given me the chance as he has.
