Jerrod Thomas is the Portland State Desktop Security & Support Manager. Since Jerrod was 9-years-old, he's been interested in and tinkered with computers. His first job was at 16 years old selling PC and Macintosh computers at a local, mom-and-pop computer shop. When he started school at Portland State in 2003, he immediately went to OIT looking for the nerdiest job he could find. Jerrod began working in User Support Services, supporting all the campus computer labs.
Since then, he's completed his undergraduate degree in Liberal Studies (with minors in Technical Writing and Psychology) and was hired as full-time staff member in 2008. His current position as the Desktop Security & Support Manager has him working with the same amazing pool of student workers that he started as, managing all of our workstation re-imaging, on-site technicians, computer classrooms and labs, as well as being a member of the PSU OIT Security team, focused on personnel and desktop security issues.
Jerrod says it's been a great ride and he's truly grateful to be a member of such an effective and compassionate organization within OIT, the Portland State community, and the incredible city he calls home.
