Together, we are AIIM!
This week we meet Joseph Ersek, Director, Information Technology. He has worked with AIIM since March 2013. His background includes running a computer repair company in Florida so when he started at AIIM as a Systems Administrator he quickly learned the system and moved on to bigger things.
Joseph is from Pennsylvania and moved to Florida with his family when he was 12. One of his best friends was into computers and they shared the “geekiness” and learned a lot from each other. They used to ditch band practice and go to Best Buy to check out the latest technology. He even won the “Best Buy Geekiness Award” and is proud of it! His love for computers, whether geeky or not, keeps him challenged, constantly learning, and ready for innovation.
Joseph now lives in Maryland with his beautiful wife enjoying the fun stuff city life has to offer and ready for the next adventure. Let’s meet Joseph.

What do you do and what do love about it?
As Director of IT I see myself as the facilitator of technology. My goal is to empower staff with the proper tools that help an organization thrive. I love the opportunity to use my technological skills to guide others toward success.
Describe yourself using 3 words only.
Techie. Dedicated. Autodidact.
What are you proudest of?
My wife and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary this year in Vegas. (laughs)…. and we know what goes on in Vegas, you see on Facebook.
Second to my marriage, would be my desire for knowledge. Technology is an ever-changing environment that stimulates my passion for innovation. To quote Johnny 5, “Need Input!”
What movie, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, do you have to watch when it’s on?
Summer or Winter?
What do you do for fun?
There is so much I don’t know where to begin. I just started Snowboarding this past year since moving up North. My favorite place is Killington, Vermont. It’s nice, big, and the trails are really long. Plus, it feels like I am in the clouds. I like playing with my dogs. I have 2 black Chihuahuas. The pic below is the Running of the Chihuahuas in DC 2014 ( People magazine online ) If you go to their website you will see my dog competing.
It seems like technology has been sucking me in for most of my life. I have been playing games on PCs since the Commodore 64! Now I’m online through Steam Network, “samuraishinta”, look me up for a great game. I also like to research new technologies. I do meet-ups and check out new gadgets and software. I’m always looking for fun things to do and there is no shortage, from snowboarding to gaming to concerts on the Mall in downtown DC, I keep busy. I work hard and play hard too, I need to have a good balance.
