As 2018 comes to a close, it is important to be thankful for all we have. Take time to reflect on the moments that changed you this year, good or bad. Don’t beat yourself up if you didn’t get through your entire 2018 bucket list. Instead of dwelling on what you have yet to accomplish, be thankful what you have accomplished and start setting new goals for 2019!
But most importantly, make time for friends and family and enjoy the spirit of the holidays!

Featured Solution: Managed IT Security
Meet Our Newest Team Member!
Alex Kalbfell is the newest member of the engineering team at TNS. Prior to coming on board, he spent the last ten years at a private investment firm.
His career grew with the company; he started off providing desktop support to over 35 employees and moved up to the role of senior engineer. After his firm closed down he spent some time consulting, but ultimately chose a team environment.
Alex brings a broad-based knowledge of technology and engineering skills and appreciates working with people that love IT as much as he does. He enjoys the “family-feel” that TNS provides and looks forward to working collaboratively with the team and our clients.
Outside of the office, he enjoys keeping up with an energetic 2-year old. Prior to becoming a father, he was an avid bike rider, participating in numerous races. He has since hung up his racing gear and opted for something less dangerous so he could focus more on family.
In his free time, you may find him listening to Eric Church or reading books by Chuck Klosterman, who looks at things in an extremely analytical and humorous manner that he finds fascinating.
A good deli sandwich with Boar’s Head cold cuts hits the mark. His grandfather would be his dinner companion of choice and his dream destination is the moon, but will take London in the meantime.
Words to Live By: “Work smarter, not harder”
