While other people may be drawn to one hobby, Holt is drawn to all of them. This obsession with a wide range of interests is what eventually introduced him to IT, and from there the world of data.
Holt grew up in Plano, Texas, where there was never a shortage of activities and new opportunities to learn. Whether it was skateboarding as a preteen (and subsequently breaking his arm three times) or selling kitchen cutlery door-to-door, Holt is full of stories from odd experiences.
After Holt’s third arm break and a surgery that put two steel plates in his arm, he decided to pick up a sport in which the chance of injury is practically nonexistent: golf. Golfing also runs in Holt’s family, as his grandfather was a collegiate golfer for Oklahoma State University and even played professionally.
One of the main aspects of Holt’s hobbies and past career choices is that he loves to learn, which is what brought him to InterWorks. After starting at InterWorks as the IT services intern, he quickly developed a passion for data–resulting in a change in path. As a data engineer, he is constantly working with different solutions and learning new technology.
