Fast forward a few more years and he became the corporate research & development chef for the company creating menu items for multiple brands. After fifteen years and multiple mergers, he decided to part ways with the company and try something different. Deano has always dabbled in construction so he took some time to work on flipping houses and looking for new opportunities. He joined Litefoot Technology and managed the Helpdesk.

David A - Tier One Technician
Grew up on Signal Mountain. I loved playing baseball, football, and doing different outdoor activities until having a diving accident at the age of 16 in August of 2010. The accident left me paralyzed from the shoulders down with limited arm mobility. Since my injury, Electronics have been my passion. In the almost twelve years since my injury, I have enjoyed building multiple computers as well as a pfSense router. I have played around with Arduino boards and raspberry pis for different projects. Gaming is one of my biggest hobbies as well as building various remote-control vehicles. I have learned how to trace 3d point clouds within AutoCAD to make 3D models and started dabbling in 3d printing recently. I have become pretty proficient with computers and various devices since my injury and frequently have family and friends call on me for IT help. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family.
