Aly joined our team in the fall of 2018 during an 8-week internship program with the Information & Technology Bridging Program through CCIS (Calgary Catholic Immigration Society). Upon completion of the program, Aly became a permanent part of the UnitedCloud Technician Team.
With almost a decade of professional experience in IT and extensive familiarity with engineering, programming, networking, telecom and software experience, Aly adds valuable expertise to our company.
I’ve been interested in IT since childhood. (My parents owned a computer college when I was growing up.)
Along with being a freelance IT consultant since 2011, I’ve also been:
- Desk-Side Support (Help Desk), PBX Lead, and Senior Desk Side at Talisman Energy for 3 years
- Telecom Analyst for HR Block for 2 years
- Integration Support Specialist at PointClickCare
SAIT Computer Technology – 2008
What I like most about UnitedCloud:
The team can actually talk tech lingo. Everyone is friendly and helpful.
Hobbies and interests I have outside of work:
Playing with all tech toys and making sure I’m prepared for any situation with my tech items (especially using them together in ways they were not meant to be used).
I have a few different IT-related projects that I’m interested in and learning about in my spare time , including VR, SMS, and programming.
What I was like at age 10:
I was into sports. I used to play soccer, badminton, table tennis, etc. I wish I had kept playing sports more often.
The weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten:
Music I like listening to:
I like the older music (e.g. ABBA , Ace of Base , Bob Marley). However, I don’t mind listening to any type of music.
The best vacation I’ve ever had:
Mombasa, Kenya. I had a lot of childhood memories attached with the vacations. Lovely beach and drive through the town. A lot of fond memories.
