We are incredibly pleased to introduce you to the newest Nerd, Troy Beard. Troy was born and raised in New Orleans, so appreciates the importance of our local businesses, which he will be serving as a Network Technician. When asked about his experiences for the past couple of months, he had this to say:
A big positive to come out of social distancing is personal hygiene has become a bigger part of everyday lives, communities have become closer, and world pollution is down significantly.
We love his great attitude and enjoyed reading his responses to our nerdy and New Orleans-related questions.
