In our HPN Spotlight series, we will be featuring High Point Networks employees from our Service, Sales and Support teams across our five locations.
Name: Tylan Hochhalter
Title: Network Technician
Office: Bismarck, ND
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Bismarck, ND, where I graduated from Century High School. I was big into competitive trap shooting when I was in high school.
What did you do before joining the HPN team?
At one point I was a plumber, but it was kind of crappy and I couldn’t stand it. I completely fell into working with security cameras working for Midwest Investigation and Security in Bismarck, ND, and I love what I do now.
What do you do in your free time?
I enjoy hunting and fishing, and I love the outdoors. I went duck hunting in Saskatchewan, which was the coolest hunting trip I’ve ever been on. It’s by far the best waterfowl hunting in our area.
What is your favorite part about HPN?
I absolutely love how HPN is a large family. Everyone seems to just click. We’re all more than happy to help each other, no matter how large or small the task. We all have the same goal in mind – doing what we love and doing it as best we can!
What is your favorite HPN moment since joining the team in June?
I’d have to say watching (HPN Security Engineer) Corey Steele drink a bottle of A1 at the company golf outing.
Editors Note: We have confirmed that this did happen, but we have not confirmed why.
What is one thing about yourself that HPN employees and customers probably don’t know?
I have a pet snake. It’s a Ball Python that is about 3 ½ ft. long.
