Interacting with our clients. Ensuring that they are confident in our ability to guide them through the inundation of technical information available. It helps that out client base if predominantly full of fun and interesting people. =)
What is your favorite part about working for Dresner Group?
The people. We have some of the very brightest minds, and the craziest personalities that create a working environment more akin to family than co-workers. It is something that, having worked in this field for decades, I do not take for granted; it is rare, and only happens naturally. You can pay someone to work, but you cannot put a price on caring.

Eat, but that’s my favorite thing to do anywhere.

Do you have a hidden talent?
Yes, I have the amazing ability to put my foot in my mouth at any moment. =)

What is this thing you speak of, spare time? This vexes me, as I know of no such thing existing. LOL
