A couple of months ago we highlighted Nathan who had just joined our support team. Nathan mentioned he knew Anthony, who was quiet, smart, technically savvy and looking for work. We added Anthony to the list of candidates vying for an open technical support position. Interviews ensued and after multiple rounds, Anthony had elevated himself above the competition to the top of the list. He accepted our offer and joins Backblaze as a member of the Backblaze support team.
Where are you originally from?
I was born in Maryland but moved to the California when I was very young. I lived in Los Angeles for a few years and then moved to the Mountain View where I currently live. I’ve been here for almost 12 years now.
Why did you move here?
My mom was a Civil Engineer in the Air Force for about 20 years. We had to move around a little bit because of that.
Where else have you worked?
I’ve worked at a food startup in San Francisco, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, and the Merced County Fairgrounds.
Where did you go to school?
I went to school at UC Merced and studied Cultural Anthropology. I really enjoyed my time there because since the university is so new, I had a great opportunity to be a trailblazer and help solidify a foundation for newer generation of UC Merced students and community.
Favorite place you’ve traveled?
I know I have to travel someday because I’ve never left the country (I know, I should!). Seattle was really nice. I really like the feel of the place, the people are nice, and I LOVE the weather.
