Blue Moon by Lee Child


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

– Theodore Roosevelt

An interview with our hiring manager

What was your first job?

I played a number of sports starting at a very early age, so during my school years, I worked at a local gym and golf resort.


What’s a fun fact about you that you’d like to share?

I had a fear of heights, but I also had the ambition to concur my fears, so I learned how to skydive. I’ve completed about 40 individual skydives around the globe.


What are your hobbies? What do you do in your spare time?

I really enjoy running, swimming, rock climbing, and anything that allows me to spend time in the great outdoors with my friends and family.


How is Origina different from any other company that you worked for in the past?

There is a real drive and ambition to grow, develop, and learn here. For example, during our company-wide meeting week, all employees were able to share their knowledge and personal accounts of challenges, as well as develop individually and as a collective unit.


What does day to day look like as a Security Operations Manager at Origina?

As they saying goes, “No two days are alike.” However, I am extremely fortunate to support Origina’s customers in addressing their security concerns whether reviewing the latest enhanced cyberthreat Intelligence or working alongside our Global IBM Experts to understand and develop novel solutions to mitigate their security issues and risks.
