Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I grew up in the Greater Cincinnati area, primarily southeastern Indiana, with my wonderful mother, father, and younger sister. I’ve worked on and off at FASCOR as an intern and was more recently taken on as an employee, becoming more involved in the development and maintenance of ongoing projects. I enjoy composing music, singing, doing graphic design, making short films, preparing food, programming recreationally, making wood burnings and 3D prints, and sundry other activities.
What do you like best about working at FASCOR?
If I can list two favorite things … first, I enjoy being able to write code that improves and streamlines day-to-day operations, both for customers and internally. And second, I am grateful to be able to work in such an open and accessible environment.
Who are some people you admire and why?
One person I admire very much is my father; the reasons are too many to list, but to name a few … I admire him for his intelligence, his creativity, and his wit, but most especially for his care and love for our family. I also admire Bill Watterson, the creator of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. I admire him for his incredible work in creating the dynamic duo who build time machines from cardboard boxes and take treacherous, philosophical wagon rides. I also admire his dedication to his principles in refusing to let his characters be commercialized.
What’s something about you that not many people know?
When I was much younger, my family lived in Germany for six months. At one point while we were there, we had to leave our house by boat due to a flood!
