This summer, TechSolve is pleased to welcome four new interns to the team. Matthew, Kevin, Jared, and Brandon are all very bright individuals who bring very different perspectives to the TechSolve. They embody many of TechSolve’s core values, and we’re passionate about sharing our knowledge and expertise of the manufacturing industry with them. As a way to recognize them, we’ve written the 2021 TechSolve Intern Spotlight.

Matt strives to work in network administration, and plans to use the full potential of his IT degree. He is very passionate about security automation scripting, and integrating new technologies into his cybersecurity work. He enjoys problem-solving, penetration testing, and snowboarding. When asked to describe himself, the reoccurring theme was his ability to be self-sufficient, and his drive to make technology function the same way.
“My favorite tasks are the problems that require intuitive thinking; when I get to automate a boring job, or search for the best possible security solution, that’s when I’m at my best.”

He says that the variety of activities in his field are what keeps him intrigued, and it helps that he gets to make a difference each day. Outside of work, he enjoys cars, playing basketball with his friends, and water-sports.
