The Great Escape

An interview with Sr. IT Consultant, Mike Oster

IT Radix: How were you introduced to Escape Rooms?

Mike: It was my eldest child’s idea. As kids, they were always encouraged to try something they had never done before. They’d make a list and we’d pick something to experience together as a family.

Cathy’s Corner – January 2022

A new year often comes with change. While I can sometimes find change a bit scary, I find focusing on what’s important to me and looking for the humor in a situation makes it easier to manage my fears and the stress of change. At IT Radix, we're changing our security software platform to better address cyberthreats, we’re adding new functionality to better serve our clients (especially with the new work from home model and ever-changing schedules), and we’ve expanded our expertise, especially in areas associated with Microsoft 365.

On a personal level, I believe one of my keys to success is to never stop learning and embracing change.

Our IT Radix Team Members Love to Cook!
More and more people are eating at home than ever before. Cooking, especially when done for others, comes with some positive psychological benefits making people feel happy and connected to others. It also evokes fond memories and provides a creative outlet.
