Moving to the west coast had always been a dream of mine, and then I was given the opportunity to do so by starting up a new location covering the entire Pacific Northwest territory. Now, after having successfully starting up the new Seattle office, I am managing all California operations including several locations in both southern and northern California. Having the ability to work in an area that also supports all of my personal hobbies has been a true blessing. Outside of work you can find me backpacking, climbing, fishing, reading or maybe even strutting around town with my golden retriever in attempt to socialize ourselves.
I truly enjoy meeting new people and helping them find solutions to their problems. Whether the task be providing technical consultation, a simple sales call, or even revamping internal management systems/practices, this is how I love to spend my typical work day. I possess superb soft skills and always strive to improve the processes around me.
I also love managing teams. Bringing together a team of individuals to create solutions for customers is ever so satisfying. Implementing a healthy culture within the workplace allows us all to be happier at work, and this allows us to take the good vibes home to our loved ones.
