NAME AND TITLE

Mike Janowski -- Senior Application Developer

MY TYPICAL WORKDAY

Get to work early, grab a cup of coffee, prepare and/or review a list of tasks I want to complete by the end of the day, and then try to complete them.

HOW I CHOSE MY CAREER PATH

I enjoy creative problem solving and as a developer I get to do that every day.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT ASCEDIA

I was attracted by the fast-paced agency life and being able to work on a number of different projects.

EDUCATION

B.S. in Computer Science from UW-Eau Claire

HIGH SCHOOL MASCOT

Lancer

FIRST JOB

Ran my own lawn mowing ‘business’ in 7th grade. I took out a loan from my dad to buy a lawnmower and paid it off in a matter of months. Still use it (although not as often as I should) to this day.

BEST PIECE OF CAREER/PROFESSIONAL ADVICE I'VE RECEIVED

Learn from other people’s mistakes. Plan ahead.

PERSONAL HERO

My wife, Emily. What she has and continues to accomplish impresses more and more each day.

FAVORITE MILWAUKEE HANGOUT

Brown Deer Disc Golf course or the least busy WAC location

LAST BOOK READ

The Phoenix Project

PERSON I'D MOST LIKE TO MEET (LIVING OR DEAD)

Elon Musk

FAMILY

Wife (Emily) and a really loud but adorable dog (Yogi)

WHAT I DO IN MY SPARE TIME

Being outdoors, disc golfing, working out and spending time with my family.

SECRET TALENT

I don’t know… I own a bolo tie and can eat really fast, does that count?

MOST MEANINGFUL ACCOMPLISHMENT

Making a skins match at the Justin Trails Open in 2010 as an amateur by shooting one of the four lowest rounds of the tournament on a very difficult course. Got the opportunity to play against three of the top pros in the area for $100 a hole. I didn’t win anything but it was an awesome experience.
