Blake Hoppes

Senior Systems Administrator

Biography

Describe your role.
I am responsible for assisting with and/or fixing almost anything that takes an electric current, needs care, maintenance, or performance help. I also assist staff and students with any tech related questions or issues they’re experiencing. I administer and advise on software solutions that improve the Academy’s effectiveness and efficiency.

What do you enjoy about your job?
No two days are the same! I never fully know what the day might bring forward and it is exciting getting to work with staff and students alike. As a techie, I feel right at home amongst the other staff too!

Why do you love the Tech industry?
I love that the Tech industry constantly changes and evolves. There’s always something new to be excited about and unlimited opportunities to expand your knowledge.

A little more about Blake…
Video and tabletop games have always been one of my greatest passions outside of Tech. I also served 8 years in the Indiana Army National Guard as a 25B with the 76th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
