Joel Common

Education: Alfred State College

Professional Certifications: HP Self Maintainer. I am also currently pursuing my CompTIA A+ and Network+.

How did you get into the technology field? It all started when I was the kid who helped everyone with their computer problems.

When did you join the Databranch team? June 2020

What do you like best about Databranch? I like that it is a local business with a small team size. I also really like that they invest in their employee’s success through training and industry certifications.

How would you describe your role at Databranch? New and Exciting!

What’s an interesting way that you use technology in your personal life? I have a “smart” home setup that allows me to control many devices in my house and setup automation and routines. One example: When it’s past sundown and I arrive home after being “away,” it can turn on the outside porch light automatically!

How many computers do you own? At least 8 or 9…. My primary desktop is a self-built computer with an Intel i7-8700, 64GB of RAM, a GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, and 2x 512GB NVME storage drives 

Hobbies: Building computers, hiking, flight lessons to get my private pilots license, and gaming.

Pets: I have 2 cats: Malkin – 8 years old, and Del – 4 years old
