We are pleased to welcome Dwayne Palevino to Epstein! Dwayne is our new Helpdesk Support Technician in our IT group, which means he comes to the rescue when we've accidently deleted the proposal we were working on, or he finds a way to stop our computer from spontaneously shutting down while in the midst of major client deliverable. So, in a nutshell, Dwayne is a miracle worker.
Dwayne was born in the Philippines but considers Chicago to be his home. He moved to Chicago, together with his parents and his brother, when he was only 2 years old. Dwayne currently lives in Lakeview and he's a big Bulls and Jimmy Butler fan, and he's also a Cubs fan, a statement that is beginning to be less sadomasochistic each and every day! (World Series 2016 Here we come! And yes, we realize we just jinxed the Cubs, but Cubs fans haven't been this excited since '08 …1908.)
Dwayne is a very creative person and would love to be able to completely concentrate on making art. He attended the Illinois Institute of Art and UIC. He loves to create different characters and sketches with charcoal pencils and is into digital painting.
Here are some examples of Dwayne's sketches and digital artwork…
Lastly, Dwayne really loooves coffee. He drinks up to 4-5 cups a day! And not coincidently, Dwayne also believes that he needs only about 4-5 hours of sleep per day. Dwayne, just a thought, but maybe cutting down on coffee will help with your sleeping issues. Just saying.
Once again, Welcome to Epstein, Dwayne! And try DeCaf every once and awhile!
