Job Title: Software Engineer, Altiris

Jared works on computers because he is easily mesmerized by the blinking lights. Lucky for Altiris, the SVS team distracted him long enough to bring him aboard in early 2005. Jared is an excellent cook who likes Mexican food and rarely has cold cereal in his cupboard. He also participates in his church choir where they have him turn the pages for the piano player, because no one wants to hear him sing. (Jared married the PIANO PLAYER sometimes it pays to do things you are bad at)
