Below is a transcription of Pegasus Technologies most recent installment of “Meet the Team,” where our very own Matthew Tucker interviews Technical Service Manager Curt Wrigley.
Matthew Tucker: Welcome everybody to our very first installation of ‘Meet the Team’. This is going to become a monthly thing that we’re going to share with all of our customers out there so they can get to know a little bit more about the staff that works at Pegasus. So today, I have Curt Wrigley with me. Curt Wrigley is our technical services manager. He has been with us for now just over four years. Five years? Five years, Curt?
Curt Wrigley: Five years and counting.
Matthew: Five and counting. So I welcome you, Curt. How are you doing today?
Curt: So far, so good. Thanks.
Matthew: All right. Good. Why won’t we just open this up for you to just take a moment and share a little bit about yourself?
Curt: Well, as Matt said. Curt Wrigley. I’ve been a technical services manager at Pegasus for a few years. Before coming to Pegasus, I have been in IT for 25 years or so. And coming from a corporate environment. And also took a stint as a videographer and wrote a few books for Adobe on nonlinear editing for a little while before coming back to IT.
Matthew: That’s great. Thanks, Curt. I appreciate that. You are a resident photographer too for the website, which is great to have on staff. So I’m going to just go into about 10 questions here and I’m going to rapid-fire many of them. I just want you to answer as the answers come to your mind. So first off, what do you enjoy the most about working at Pegasus?
Curt: I have got to say the people. Pegasus is a good company and I like the technology that we work with but you do enjoy the people that you’re working with and I enjoy the people at Pegasus. Good group.
Matthew: Great. Yeah, I couldn’t agree more. Alright, our next one. What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer?
Curt: I would probably thaw him out and see if he still works.
Matthew: Well, hopefully, being that’s he comes from the North Pole, he’s not totally frozen. So, good. All right. Moving into some real-world challenges here. What is the most challenging thing about being in quarantine?
Curt: Being in quarantine is probably just not being out in the public. I’m kind of a social person so being in the house every day, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week can lead to some monotony. But using these tools like we’re using right now is certainly helped alleviate that a little bit as well as help us do our jobs.
Matthew: Great. Excellent. All right. What’s your spirit animal?
Curt: My spirit animal?
Curt: I’m not sure but I think I would like it to be a bald eagle.
Matthew: Wow. There you go. Back to your photography, right?
Curt: Yeah, I like photographing them and they just have this look that demands respect.
Matthew: Excellent. Well, you know I have one in my yard. You should come over and see it once we’re all allowed back out. All right, next. Name one accomplishment during the quarantine that you’re most proud of.
Curt: Part of my responsibility is I’m responsible for the text at Pegasus. So I would have to say, the best thing I’ve seen in this is we’re able to continue to do our work to service our customers, meet all their expectations in this remote environment, and we have not seen a drop in productivity. Everyone is raised to the challenge and I’m very happy about that.
Matthew: Great, great. Can you describe yourself in one word?
Matthew: Okay. Good job. I appreciate that. What’s your favorite kind of sandwich?
Curt: Favorite kind of sandwich has got to be a Philly cheesesteak.
Matthew: Yeah, a local favorite. Sure. All right, just two more left. So, we’re getting near the end here. If you turn around and in the doorway was a penguin with a mustache wearing a sombrero and a poncho, what do you think the penguin would say?
Matthew: Great. All right. Final one here. If you could spend an entire week with anyone, dead or alive, who would that be?
Curt: That’s an interesting question. My musical hero is someone probably not many people are familiar with. His name was Maynard Ferguson. He’s a jazz trumpet legend. He passed away several years ago. And if I could tour with his band for a week and pretend I can keep up in the trumpet section in the back, that would be awesome.
Matthew: All right. Good, good. Well, Curt. I want to thank you for your time here and sharing a little bit about yourself with our clients. Until next week– Until next month, everyone. We will have another team member. And Curt, thank you very much. Everyone, have a great day.
Curt: Thank you. Bye.
