IT Guy

Cary has been working for the Esk’etemc band since long time ago. He runs the CAPP site, keeps every piece of hardware on Esk’et running. Always busy, he’s probably wishing he could sit at his desk for a while. However, he is probably out of his office and making rounds to the departments putting out IT fires.

A day in the life…
