Tristan Wamble joined the Aptitude Internet team in 2021, proving his indomitable work ethic from the outset by taking on the toilsome tasks of General Laborer with the construction team of Aptitude’s then subsidiary, Midwest Fiber Construction (MFC).

When MFC was dissolved, Wamble was among the chosen few absorbed into the in-house construction crew. He soon experienced the accelerated career progression emblematic of our company’s career ladder, leading to his current position as Aerial Crew Team Lead, St. James.

Wamble was born in Page, Arizona but spent most of his childhood moving around towns in Southeast Missouri. He stayed active growing up, achieving the athletic trifecta of playing baseball, basketball, and marching band in high school. He even set a record for pitching a no-hitter, an award he cherishes and keeps to this day.

Wamble expressed an affinity for skills of the trades, leading him to undertake official training to become a Lineman in 2019, and the subsequent apprenticeship to further develop his knowledge and expertise.

One of the things Wamble loves most about his job is being out in the full glory of nature, unrestrained by the oppressive confinement of an air-conditioned office space.

He says he doesn’t mind his nearly three-and-a-half-hour daily commute to and from his home across the Illinois border, as it allows him to vibe to his superabundant Apple Music playlist of over 7800 songs.

When he’s home, he enjoys playing with his one-year-old daughter, Wrenley Sue, mostly by keeping her from exploring the electrical outlets.

When he’s not driving several hours each day, Wamble pursues a hobby that is also a family tradition by wrenching on one of his favorite project cars. He currently maintains the spiff on either his 2008 Pontiac G8 or a 1999 Mustang GT. He’s also an avid fisherman, boasting an 8-pound largemouth bass as his biggest catch.

Wamble looks forward to continuing to grow at Aptitude and has his sights aimed at project management.
