Mike Latimer is one of the awesome behind the scenes employees here at briteCITY! You may not have seen his face, but I’m sure you may have talked to him at one point or another. You may recognize him from his hit AMC show “Breaking Bad” (we kid, but really, he looks exactly like Walter White). Mike is known around the office to be fun loving and sympathetic. He always has a listening ear for when you need it, and a joke to help lighten the mood. He has been with briteCITY for 4 years and his official title is Pod Manager.

Mike is also an extremely skilled technician and is great at solving problems for users. If you are lucky enough to talk to him, I’m sure he will make your day BRITE by solving your technical issue quickly and with a great sense of humor.

I asked Mike a few questions about his job and his life….

What is your favorite part of your job? The commute?  No….that’s not it. I’d probably say that it’s being a source of relief (comic or otherwise) for someone who is having a bad day.

What is one thing that makes briteCITY great? Good people with the right priorities.

What is the weirdest job you have ever had? Worked at Thrifty.  Covered both the liquor dept, which was right next to the Ice Cream stand.  “I’d like a half pint of early times and a double chocolate malted crunch”

Where is your favorite place to be? I don’t have favorites…actually, that’s just a rationalization for someone who can’t make up their mind. Someplace tropical with a book.

When you aren’t working, what do you love to do? You mean there’s something to do besides work?

What does leadership mean to you?  Being an example to others and recognizing that my way may not be the only way.

What is one thing you couldn’t live without? Several.  Oxygen and Water are a couple favs.  Honestly, there is nothing that I couldn’t live without although those around me would probably say Vitamin Water Zero.

If you could have a different job for one day, what would you want to do?  Surgeon.  But, with only one day experience, I wouldn’t expect stellar results.

What is your favorite Book & Song? Book: Ready Player One (Just a ton of nostalgic fun in just under 400 pages). Song: one that I could definitely listen to on repeat is “For the Love of God” by Steve Vai…..that or the pineapple pen song from Youtube.

Apple or Android? Android….seriously, that’s a question?
