How do you explain your job to non-technical people?I'd say that I'm the person where the "buck stops here."

In the past, I've been chair of the Technology Committee of the California CPA Society, and used my time to educate fellow certified public accountants on the risk of running systems with full administrative rights. I set up the website threatcode.com to help educate fellow technical CPAs and assist in getting vendors to change their ways.
What's your favorite part of your job?All of my job for the most part; making a difference with faculty, staff and constituents is always fulfilling. I enjoy working with our BITS (Berry Information Technology Students) especially. I enjoy the way we get along as a department. And there are also the day-to-day IT challenges — where would we be without that?
