Implementation Project Manager for Green House Data, Brad BickfordWelcome back to Get to Know Green House Data, where we introduce you to the great staff keeping your apps and data online 24/7. This week, we talk to Implementation Project Manager Brad Bickford, who takes us along on some of his favorite outings in Seattle and around the nearby mountains.

Which office do you work in? Are you originally from the area?

I work out of the Seattle office, and I am originally from Washington, born and raised.  I’ve spent my whole life in the Seattle area. 

What are your favorite things to do in Seattle?

I like to go with my family to parks or the waterfront and just enjoy the scenery. We like going to Golden Gardens park and the Locks (Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, or Ballard Locks). There’s lots to see there; we like to watch the boats go through and check out the fish ladder. The spawning season is a lot of fun, you see lots of salmon.

How long have you been in Client Services?

1 ½ years with Green House Data, before that, I was with FiberCloud for 8 years.

What are some of your favorite work projects? Least favorite?

I like to dig into things and get to the bottom of what’s going on, while keeping an eye on the big picture. 

I am not a big fan of unneccesary meetings. 

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to hike and I also like to go on long drives. The family and I like to hike around Mt. Rainier – the views are spectacular. For drives, I love going over the mountains. There are a couple of really fun drives: one goes over Stevens Pass, and the other one goes over the North Cascades Highway. That one is only open in the summer time.

Three days at a resort with spa treatments, or three days camping in a secluded spot in the mountains?

Camping for me!!!

Donuts or bagels?

Donuts, definitely!

What do you like about working at Green House Data? Why?

I like the openness of the executive and management teams.  The transparency allows us to always know what’s going on.
