Do you have a hobby or personal passion?
Fishing. Hunting for pheasant, deer and turkey. Visiting and hiking in our national parks. 
Who was your role model?
My Dad.

What was your childhood dream?
To travel to exotic destinations like Iceland (which I got to do)

What is the best or most interesting thing about your career?
All of the wonderful, fascinating people who I meet and work with across such a diverse range of industries.  I enjoy learning about other industries. 

What was your first job?
I worked for a company that refurbished the airbrake systems on railroad cars. I learned to operate heavy equipment and flatbread trucks. I can tell you far more than you’d want to learn about airbrake assembly and repair. 

Do you have a “motto?”
Try every day to learn something new. Imagine that knowledge as a grain of sand, and as you go through life you accumulate new grains of sand…creating a beautiful white beach.
