When Patrick Adesso was in school, a teacher told him to find three passions: one for himself, one to share with his family and one to turn into a profession. Luckily for him, his first passion for technology started when he was a kid with a screwdriver, a knife and an old computer.
Throughout the years, he’s found the other two passions as well, even though they’ve swapped their roles a bit. His passion for aviation moved from a profession to a hobby while his interest in software took over as a career. But that passion for his family stayed steady throughout.
In this episode, Patrick shares how he’s balanced his many passions, how a chance encounter at a first birthday party set him on the course to being the CIO at DEX Imaging and why an old aviation saying from his dad still serves as a reminder to never give up.
