What do you like best about IFMA?

Meeting other people in the industry, and understanding how they complete and manage the tasks of our job.

Your first job?

I started working when I was ten for a catering business, and I still work for them.

What do you like best about your current job?

I like the flexibility to create, present, and hopefully implement projects that I think will increase productivity, and make it easier for the maintenance department to do its job.

Best advice ever received:

The best advice that I have ever received is to make sure that I work to have fun in life, and don't let work become my life.

Greatest personal achievement:

My greatest personal achievements are graduating from college, and being currently ranked in to top twenty in the country, in Off-Road ATV Racing.

What do you do for fun?

For fun I race ATVs on a national cross country circuit. This takes a lot of time and effort, but in the off time, I also enjoy hunting and working on home improvement projects.
