This week, we go to Seattle to talk to Data Center Operations Specialist Mike Wittenberger, who recently spearheaded the implementation of cold aisle containment in our Westin Building facility. Mike explains his globetrotting upbringing and spills the beans on some of his favorite spots in Seattle.
Originally I was born in Okinawa, and traveled all over the world, but have always called Yarrow Point, Washington home, due to my grandparents and parents living here, and living here almost every summer.
Walking through Pike place Market, smelling all of the aroma’s (flowers, fresh seafood, bread, pastries, etc.). Sitting in one of my favorite restaurants (Athenian) overlooking the view in the sound. Exploring and finding new restaurants and dining places.
Age 12, with my first Atari video game console. I took the family television and game console apart to integrate the two, got into trouble from my parents, and had to put everything back together. They were surprised when everything worked after I put it all back.
Creation or re-engineering an item to make it work better. Documentation is my least favorite.
Fishing, golf, frisbee golf, sailing, hiking, and riding my bicycle.
Samurai sword, Land Rover Defender, a german shepard as a side kick, and an island as homebase.
The challenges, team work, and being part of the best.
