David Whitt Assistant Project Manager

What is your role with SRE? Assistant Project Manager

What project are you most proud of? I’m proud of the Orchard Ranch project in Idaho. Even after the mayor of Boise declared a state of emergency for the worst winter in 30+ years, we built a solar site.

What is the most unexpectedly interesting place you’ve traveled for work? I didn’t expect to find much in West Texas but after a few months in the desert, I discovered Big Bend national park, the world’s third largest observatory, and the artistic town of Marfa.

What are some things you shouldn't say at work? Don’t complain. It doesn’t change the circumstances and it brings down those around you. However, reframing a bad situation into a challenge is a great way to motivate.

What was your first job? I was a lifeguard at our local Boy Scout summer camp. I got to teach the younger scouts how to swim and the older scouts how to sail which was incredibly rewarding.
