Troy grew up in Kent. He attended elementary school and middle school in Brimfield and graduated from Ravenna High School where he studied IT at the Maplewood Career Center. Since then, he has continued his education. He completed his Bachelor of Business Administration in Computer Information Systems at Kent State University and has received several certifications from Microsoft® and Dell® over the course of his career. And, as we’ve already noted, he continues to learn daily in his job.
He isn’t all work, though. Outside of the office Troy enjoys Karaoke and he also plays bass guitar. Troy says, “My favorite music is rock ‘n roll and I especially like songs with funky baselines.” Although, he noted that he sings a variety of music when he’s hanging out with friends doing Karaoke.
It may surprise you to learn that, in the last year, Troy has lost 85 pounds and counting. He’s following the Keto diet. “It’s basically a low carb diet,” explained Troy. Even though he didn’t win the recent ‘Biggest Loser’ contest at QualityIP, Troy is understandably proud of his diet success.
