Jimmy Snider


I’m Jimmy, a carpenter of 10 years. I have been interested in technology since I can remember. From my first RC car, to the first time I ever dialed-up the internet on a 56k connection, to the first time I played NES with my sister. I’m a hands-on type person who likes to build things whether it be a house, a custom computer, or a hovercraft made from a vacuum cleaner, plywood, and a couple rolls of duct-tape.


Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: I first learned about Centriq on the radio. My family has always been pushing me to do what I’ve always had a passion for, so I decided to set up a meeting with Russ. After touring the facility, I decided Centriq would be a good fit for me. I needed a change for the better, and I thought Centriq would be the path I would take.

Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: My favorite subject matter so far has been generally the security aspect of things. Be it network, physical, application, or anything in between. It has always interested me how to counter security threats.

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: I hope to start a new career in a field I feel I belong in. It feels incredibly overdue. I hope to find a company I can grow with and make something great out of it. I’m always inspired by the Elon Musks, and Michio Kakus of the world.

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: I play the drum-set. Building RC cars is a hobby of mine. I am slightly obsessed with String Theory. Aerospace technology is fascinating to me. On the side, I like to build stages for big rock concerts.
