Employee Highlight: Recognizing Carlos Garcia
It’s official! We have a new hire here at Automation Concepts and he goes by the name of Thiago Keanu. Thiago is already dedicated to his work and working among a certain senior technician day in and day out. That’s right, our service Manager, Carlos is a new dad!
Before Thiago came into this world, lets rewind a couple of decades back. Carlos was just a kid from the Dominican Republic. Moving to the states with his family at a young age, Carlos remembers receiving his first family computer at age 10. Eldest of three, it was always a battle for who was going to use the computer first. His drive and passion lead him to pull together all the money from his first job to buy his very own computer, upon which he began to build his skills. He knew computers were more than just a hobby or fun pastime, he could make a career out of it.
Beginning his higher education in Mechanical Engineering, Carlos came to the decision that career path was not giving him the fulfillment he was looking for. Still wanting to purse his love for technology, Carlos knew he wanted to be able to help people and make a difference in their lives. While making a brief stop working for a nursing home, Carlos found his way to Automation Concepts. Starting as a temp to perm employee, Carlos quickly demonstrated his enthusiasm and drive and hunger for knowledge. With that determination, Carlos worked to becoming our Senior Tech & Service Manager. Now he is managing a group of techs, assisting clients’ needs, and has become the go-to person on all new and upcoming technology. One of Carlos’s most admirable characteristic is his zest for knowledge. He is always looking to better himself in every aspect of his life. Whether it be listening to Ted Talks on his way to work, watching YouTube videos on network configurations during lunch, or reading articles on the latest tech.
When Carlos is not at work, you can frequently find him spending time with family and friends, zipping around on his motorcycle, or working on one of his many at home projects. Just like his love for technology, he loves knowing the mechanics on how things work. Carlos is currently building his own audio equipment to be installed in his BMW, as well as upgrading parts in his motorcycle. While there might not be that much time any more for all his hobbies, we are confident Carlos already has plans on building Thiago his own motorcycle when the time comes.
With life changing in the best ways possible, we want to welcome Carlos and his beautiful and resilient wife Moriah into the world of parenting. Buckle up for the longest rollercoaster of your life. It will be filled with loads of warm cuddles, sleepless nights and more love than you knew you could give. Congratulations Carlos and Moriah and welcome Thiago to this big crazy world!
