Written by Gentry Lusby

At Nxtbook, I’m responsible for keeping the technology that we have up and running so that our users can strive for success! My educational background is mainly in the IT field which began when I went to a technical high school to learn computer networking and cyber security. After that I learned from self-education and experience in the field. I hold several IT certifications and am working on my 6th right now, which is the Cisco CCNP R&S certification.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by those who are passionate about what they do in life and work hard to make their goals happen even when they seem impossible.

What makes you laugh?
A lot of things make me laugh, I try to find the humor in everything, but most of all I would say Dwight’s random comments to Jim on “The Office” are very funny.

What is your favorite quote?
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm”
-Winston Churchill

What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about doing my best each day and pushing myself to be the version of me that I would like to see in the future.

What is one random fact about yourself?
I am a car enthusiast! I race around in my Corvette Grand Sport on the weekends.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
It would be cool to be able to fly! I think I would probably do normal things like fly to the store or to work though. Maybe I could bypass all of the traffic while on the way home on Route 30?

What is your favorite Nxtbook Value and why?
Integrity, I think it is very important to form positive integral habits at work, at home, and in just about every area of life. Here at Nxtbook we all try to go throughout our daily routines with integrity while working with clients and each other!
