Daniel Laird is a technology support professional at SUNY Oswego.

Laird, 30, earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration while he minored in economics and history at SUNY Oswego. He began his technology career in 2002 as a network administrator at Medical Management Resources, Inc. He was instrumental in using open source software at MMRI to monitor network usage and basically eliminated viruses by blocking all known virus attachments on the exchange mail server.

He has spent extensive time and effort with his present coworkers to show them everything he did at MMRI. Laird mentored a co-worker to take over his efforts and created extensive thorough walk-throughs for complicated technical applications.

After living and working in Syracuse for five years, he moved back to the Port City and was hired by SUNY Oswego. Laird is president of YP Voice of Oswego County and a member of the Literacy Volunteers of Oswego County Technology Committee. “I have developed new relationships with community groups to give YP Voice a new sense of community service,” he said. He spends on average 20 hours a week on both endeavors. “I wanted to return to the Oswego community to make it a place I want my children to be part of. I have dedicated myself to this goal,” he said.

He is married to Julie, and has a daughter Kaleigh and son William. “My family and sense of community make me put forth my full efforts,” he said. “I want Oswego to become a place we all can be happy to live in and be proud of.” (LS)
