Each month, we'll introduce you to an interesting member of the Professional Staff Senate. This month's featured member is John Christensen, System Administrator in the Law School.
I have worked at UB for twenty years this October.
What I enjoy most about my job is helping students, faculty and staff with their technical problems and issues so they can be successful.
The most challenging part of my jobs is when something breaks and there is no known fix for an issue, and the only fix is sometimes trial and error and persistence.
My biggest achievement at UB is programing software solutions that have meet the specific needs of the Law School for decades better than some very expensive commercial products.
Law IT has been running an ongoing Zoom Live IT support meeting for Law School users every weekday since the Covid19 Pandemic hit.
My advice would be that persistence and a good attitude will accomplish a great deal.
My hobbies include driving classic cars, hunting, and spending time with my wife and three daughters.
A breakfast scramble, which includes home fries, eggs, sausage, and bacon.
The fjords of Scandinavia where my ancestors lived.
I also enjoy working on home renovation projects and have gutted and rebuilt most of my over 100 year old home in East Aurora.
