What I Enjoy Most About My Job
I enjoy interacting with people from all over the world with a common interest in HDG steel. Also, the technical deep dives that I get to participate in always seem to keep me on my toes.
My Most Significant Contribution to Our Members/Industry
The Technical department is involved in, and aware of, many research and development projects that are relevant to our industry. Taking information from these projects and working with the marketing department to make the content palatable to the layman is a challenging but rewarding endeavor.
What I Consider the Most Interesting/Impactful Thing about HDG
Just like any other resource, it is important to use steel wisely. With so many environmental concerns on the horizon these days, extending the life of steel and the industries it supports is vastly more impactful than switching to paper straws.
Other Interesting Things that Shape My Life
Depending on the season, skiing, hunting, and riding motorcycles are the things I look forward to. When the weather isn’t great or hunting season is over, I am constantly reading and looking for the next great book. I also have a spoiled 95 lbs. Cane Corso (dog) named Cleo that requires constant walks, snacks, and attention.
The dude abides.
