I was blogged forward by @Kristen Gentile http://scn.sap.com/community/about/blog/2012/08/20/blog-it-forward-krysten-gentile
My name is Greg Myers, and I am a Principal Technical Architect at EVtechnologies and an SAP Mentor. I specialize in SAP BusinessObjects architecture, sizing, performance, and administration. I also recently finished writing SAP BusinessObjects System Administration for SAP-PRESS. I’ve been working with BusinessObjects in some way, shape, or form for about 10 years now and I just don’t think there is any going back. 🙂
This picture was taken at EPCOT, shortly after the SAP BusinessObjects User Conference last year.
When I’m not fixing broken technology, I enjoy working in my organic vegetable garden. I am into both “regular” composting and worm composting, and I get some of the biggest and tastiest vegetables imaginable. I have also, once, appeared as “Dark Elvis” whilst in Vegas at SAP TechEd.
What was your dream job as a kid?
I actually used to think I was going to make a living as an artist. I spent a lot of time in art class in middle and high school, and even spent my first year undergrad at the Maryland Institute, College of Art for Graphic Design. After a year at art school, though, I realized I hated it. The lack of right and wrong, everything being subjective really drove me bonkers. Information Technology ended up being a much better fit for me.
What is your favorite place in the world?
This is a trick question. I’m not sure I can pick just one. My favorite man-made wonder I have ever been to is Macchu Picchu in Peru. Scientists still don’t know how it was built without modern machinery. It defies words. My favorite natural wonder is the Grand Canyon in Arizona. I got to take the mule ride down as a young man, and the impression it left is indelible. My favorite city in the world is Paris, France. Food, wine, culture.
What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?
I’d have to say that the most fun project I ever got to work on was our haphazard project at InnoJam at SAP TechEd on 2011. We weren’t going to compete at all, and just went to watch, but the gears started turning around the table, and before you know it, we had a project going. There was so much brain-power at our table, it was really the most fun “work” ever.
