I am the father of three wonderful children who likes to have fun and enjoys the company of others. If you asked my friends they would probably say that I am hardworking, honest, thoughtful, faithful, creative, empathetic, considerate, and caring. Growing up in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York I developed passions for bicycling and skiing. Living in Virginia one doesn't get the opportunity to slap on a pair of skis as often as one would like, but some of that is made up by the fact the weather is suitable for riding a bike 10 mouths out of the year. Give me a hill to slide down or to climb up and I'm happy:) The steeper, the longer, the better!
I'm also an Industrial Engineer and I really enjoy my job. It can be challenging, stressful and exhausting at times, but I get to solve problems, initiate change, improve working conditions and get to work with some really great people. If I had to guess I'd say that 75% of my time is spent running projects and everyone is different and everyone is a learning experience. Sometimes I work with the people on the floor and other times I work with design guys that have IQs that are off the chart. Either way, its fun because I'm constantly learning. As long as the people that I'm working with have a "can make it happen attitude" or as long as I can get them in the "can make it happen mindset" I'm good.
