The Search for Ruesseler and His Time
This reporter has been tracking down Tim Ruesseler for nearly two month trying get him to sit still for this interview. Mr. Ruesseler has been ignoring this reporter and this interview for a long while. “We’ll do it soon” was his almost daily response to my relentless requests. Finally, on this unusually warm pre-spring day he relented and sat down with me on a Tuesday afternoon in early March.
My first impression of Mr. Ruesseler was his almost “Zen” like demeanor which to this reporter seemed unusual for someone who is driven to his own personal.
I asked Ruesseler about his early life “I was born a few miles outside of Hannover Germany where my father is a nuclear engineer and my mother is a medical doctor. I have a brother who is also living here in Acworth and a sister that is attending UGA in Athens. My family has had dual citizenship for as long as I can remember. I believe I was 8 when we first came to America for my father’s work”.
Mr. Ruesseler is a 25 year old single male 3rd year undergraduate at KSU, working towards a teaching degree with a focus on mathematics. I dug a little deeper into his family to find his brother is working towards an engineering degree while his sister is following her mother’s career path and looking towards medical school next year.
While Mr. Ruesseler is a fulltime student he still works a 40 hour work week at a local Chick Fil A where he quickly became a shift manager. Mr. Ruesseler stated “I love this company and the core principles it stands for”. He went on to say “I plan to finish my education within the next two to three years depending on my decision to secure my Masters degree in education. Once that decision is made my ultimate goal is to open my own Chick Fil A store”. Ruesseler stated. One of Mr. Ruesseler many concerns prior to opening his own business was to have a solid understanding of technology and how vitally important the understanding of technology and computers are to running a business.
Prior to this reporters asking Ruesseler to be part of my senior project he knew very little about how computers really worked. Of course like all millennia’s he knew how to turn them on surf the internet, do word documents for school papers but that was about all he knew. He had no idea of how they worked or what made them work and how to make them work better. He had no idea there was different systems for different application and businesses. He knew if he were to be successful in business he had to know how computers worked from the ground up. So this is how we began our journey to build a computer to help run his dream business.
