Brendan Lewis, Tier 1 Technician

Hi, my name is Brendan! While I have interned with Mirazon on and off in the past, I officially joined the Mirazon team in October of 2018!

For as long as I can remember, I have always been in front of a computer for some reason or another. From being a little kid and sitting in my father’s lap, watching him play PS1 games like Resident Evil or PC games like Command and Conquer to now where I touch computers daily, be it for academic, work, or entertainment purposes. Information technology is a field that isn’t going to leave us any time soon and I find it important not just for myself to stay ahead of the curve, but to help others stay ahead as well. I enjoy how my problem solving skills are put to the test and fixing an issue is one of the greatest feelings there is, especially when a customer is happy with the end result.

Previously, I attended the Prosser Career Education Center and went through their computer networking program; there I earned my CompTIA A+ and some Microsoft MTAs covering a vast variety of topics. Currently I am taking classes at Ivy Tech with a focus on networking, though I do take server administration and cyber security classes as electives. My aim is to graduate with an Associate of Applied Science in Networking before transferring to IUS to obtain a Bachelor of Applied Science in similar categories.

When I am not at work or studying for my classes, I am usually playing video-games, creating content for my YouTube channel, reading, or spending time with my friends and family. Other, more unique hobbies include bird watching and shopping for antiques!
