Garth started at PayneWest in 2017 after leaving his position at the University of Montana. He spent five years supporting University of Montana as a helpdesk supervisor and server technician. During this time, he also attended classes part-time in the information technology networking systems and security program. He still has a few classes to go on his associate’s degree, but he is CompTIA A+ and Computer Support certified through Missoula College. Though he has not worked in the insurance industry before, Garth is eager to learn and excited to help.Before moving to Missoula, Garth spent most of his time in Kalispell, where he was born, but he has also lived in Billings, Coeur d'Alene and Deer Lodge. Garth's interests include performance computer hardware, video games, working on cars, climbing and mountain biking. Just be sure to ask for his computer help, rather than his car help, unless you don't mind calling for a tow truck while stranded on the side of a road.
