Who is Troy Fontaine?

Troy Fontaine is a self-professed geek and technology addict who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

From a very early age he has displayed an aptitude for technology-starting with the disassembly and re-assembly of an alarm clock at age 3.  Born and raised in Winnipeg, he has worked in a variety of roles but has always held a passion for understanding the devices and tools around him.  Working with Mogo Finance Technology Inc since the summer of 2012, he has drastically developed his skill set and been lauded for his knack for troubleshooting and dedication by his team mates.

With years of experience setting up and managing Windows Server-based networks and a developing interest in Mac OS and Ubuntu, Troy strives to learn at least one new thing a day about the tools around him to both improve himself and offer added value to his team and employer.  Actively using Amazon Web Services EC2 and Virtual Private Cloud products, he is familiar with growing a business’ infrastructure into the cloud.

When time permits, between spending time with his growing family and the needs of work, Troy enjoys photography, cooking, reading and finding some new gadget to explore and understand.
