After dislocating his shoulder during a shift at FedEx, Danavan McIntosh decided he wanted a job that engaged his mind, instead of taxing his body.
As a kid, he’d always enjoyed taking apart gaming systems and putting them back together – to figure out how they worked. Today, he knows computers are essential to our way of life and industries are in need of tech-savvy people.
