You know what's fun? Meeting people through the work I do here at

One such person is a fellow Ohioan who's a techie in a more low-key way than most of the other Catholic Techies I've interviewed here.


Maggie Brudnicki lives near Dayton, Ohio, and is an email and Microsoft  Exchange administrator. She currently is working as a contractor at a large digital company, and there's no doubt her days are filled with technology.

She also has taken our Catholic Techie interviews to more of a "techie on the street" approach, which I love.

So let's learn more about Catholic Techie Maggie Brudnicki, shall we?

Tell us about yourself in five words or less.

Catholic Mom, Techie, crafter, sewer.

Of your pursuits, what's your favorite?

Choosing material for quilts is my favorite pursuit.

When you think of the New Evangelization from your approach as a "Catholic Techie," what excites you? What makes you want to continue?

I like looking at all of my sources of information and seeing pieces of my Catholic identity. I am a visual person, so the reminders of the life I want to lead keep that goal in focus.

What's the most rewarding aspect of your work?

When I can help people achieve their goals by showing them how to use technology.  I also enjoy the problem-solving and troubleshooting pieces of my job.

In your spare time, what are we likely to find you doing? Do you have a gadget in hand or do you go native and screenless?

I am hooked in with a smartphone when I am away from the house. A couple of years ago I switched from using a Blackberry to an Android phone because I was spending a lot of time int he parking lot of my son's high school. Being able to read the news or or a digital book became important. At home I have a laptop next to the chair I sit in and I am usually looking at a site like Pinterest while watching TV.
