FARMER OF THE WEEK: DEVIANO WILLIAMSON

25.7.2021

This week in the spotlight is one of the unsung heroes from our IT team, Deviano Williamson.

 

 

How did you become a Farmer?

After spending a few years working to provide IT support for schools, I had the urge to work with new software and technologies.  I saw a great opportunity at The Farm, so here I am!

 

What is the best part of your job?

Solving issues and helping others.  As the saying goes... you learn something new everyday.

 

What have you missed most during the pandemic?

Being able to travel!

 

What’s the one thing that most people do not know about you?

I've been reading the Lore and playing the same game religiously for over seven years, #Destiny.

 

What’s the last thing that made you smile?

Another one of my friends is having their first child!

 

The funniest thing that’s happened to you at The Farm?

I was tasked with re-locating some equipment... but ended up setting off the alarm at The Shed, then the police turned up within seconds and I was questioned for about 15-minutes before they let me leave the facility. I was dressed in all black, carrying 4 laptops...

 

How do you unwind and de-stress after a busy day?

I like to put on some relaxing music and meditate.

 

What three words best describe you?

Calm, quiet, but somehow pompous.

 

Your favourite Farm Animal?

A Stallion!
