Intuitive IT Solutions’ Team

You can rely on the experts at Intuitive IT to provide you with professional IT service (with a sense of humor).

Dave Franz

President/CEO

Adopted by wolves and then sold into slavery, Dave is no stranger to adversity. After stealing the charisma of a local demigod, Dave soon flattered his way out of servitude and into the world of IT (although some consider that to be less of a step up and more of a lateral move).

Sarah Franz

Spencer Nichols

Network & Server Engineer

Spencer joined Intuitive IT in 2012 and is now one of our most senior team members. He is certified in Microsoft 7. Spencer is studying Information Systems at the University of Utah, where he has funded almost his entire education through work. He has been solving computer problems and building computer networks for friends, relatives and church since high school. Despite only having had the first year of a two year high school Cisco course, he took fourth place in the Indiana State High School Cisco Challenge in 2002. He has also served a mission for his church in Louisiana.

While most of Spencer’s time is spent at work and attending the University he does try to find moments for some R and R.  He likes to spend time in Brighton hiking and observing nature.  He appreciates a good book and is always looking for suggestions to add to his “To Read” list.  He loves church and devotes a lot of energy to serving his fellow men.  He likes catching a movie, going out to eat, and playing computer games with his friends.  He enjoys traveling and recently returned from Europe where he visited Amsterdam, Paris, London, and Copenhagen.  He is a proud uncle who dotes on his niece and nephews and hopes to have a family of his own one day.  Some of his favorite things include:  Three Musketeer bars, Fettuccine Alfredo, Smallville, NCIS, mythology, and Shakespeare.

 Nicholas Macy

Support Team Member

Nicholas has been intrigued by computers since an early age. Growing up in the country with not many people his age around, gaming came very naturally to him. His pursuit of computer gaming increased his interest into computers, and at the age of 12 built his first computer. Throughout his teen and early adult life he pursued a career in IT, including starting his own IT consulting company at the age of 16. He has many years of experience doing desktop support and troubleshooting in both the business and education environments. He is currently pursuing continued education in IT with a focus in Linux, server management, and cyber security.

When Nicholas is not fixing computers he is typically playing on them. Some of his hobbies include, building robots, staying current on technology, being a pyrotechnician, and playing the occasional game. He has recently made the switch to using Linux as his primary OS on computers, except for his gaming computer. He enjoys the occasional visit to the shooting range, in high school he was the team captain of the Trap team. Nicholas considers himself to be a general nerd, who enjoys computers, is a large Star Wars fan, enjoys Star Trek, and he has been known to join in on the occasional D&D night. His aim in life is to help improve the lives of others. Computers in his mind have a lot of potential to help mankind solve and improve many problems and struggles and looks forward to the opportunities to help make this so.

Matt Orr

Support Team Member

Matt has grown up being around computers nearly all his life. He often visited his father at PC Discounters, where he gained an appreciation and curiosity for all things computer related. He first began his career in technology working at PC Discounters at the age of 16, where he worked for 7 years. While taking computer courses in high school, Matt learned the basics of building and troubleshooting desktops and doing hardware repairs. He also pursued several years of additional education at Utah Valley University in the Computer Engineering department.

Matt joined Intuitive IT in 2017 as a support team member and is currently working towards becoming a Certified SonicWALL Security Administrator. When he has free time, Matt is usually found on his gaming desktop, playing his way through Real Time Strategies and Action RPGs. He also enjoys a good read in the fantasy genre, Lord of the Rings being his favorite series.

Josiah Christiansen

Support Team Member

Growing up, Josiah was always curious about how things work. Playing computer games on the weekends with his older brother and cousins piqued his interest in computers at young age. Josiah followed in his brother’s footsteps, learning about computers through gaming, taking computer classes in high school, and working for PC Discounters, a computer repair shop, for over two years. After a full day of work, Josiah works hard studying Information Systems at Utah Valley University to improve his IT skills and to better help our clients.

Outside of work and school, Josiah spends his time fulfilling his church responsibilities and enjoying the company of family and friends. A few nights a year, he organizes and hosts a game night with friends and family to play computer games, exchange some nerdy jokes, and spend time together. One of Josiah’s life goals is to design, develop, and publish his own game, and he works hard to make this goal a reality. He is determined to help improve the lives around him, be it troubleshooting and resolving computer issues, or just having a conversation to brighten someone’s day.
