Connect with Travis Wade


I’m an IT Professional with 5+ years experience in Systems Administration / Cloud Systems (Azure, AWS, GCE) and 15+ years in customer success and 7+ years in management. Among a wide array of industries and split between both local and city government to private sector. I’ve worked with healthcare agencies, managed service providers, municipalities and web development companies. My skills are spread wide and I’ve had the chance to work with many different systems throughout the years.

I’m a person who enjoys being busy, and in a fast-paced team or solo environment. I’m an outgoing individual who doesn’t mind speaking to all levels of an organization. I can efficiently explain technical topics to non-technical personnel.

I have an Associate’s degree in Network Systems Administration where I averaged at graduation with a 3.3 GPA.
