What is your job title, and what does that
position entail?
I am a Production Technician, I build E cabs (control panels), build sub-assemblies, test products to ensure conformance and package product for shipment.

How long have you worked at Olympus, where did you come from?
I started at Olympus in April 2015, but already enjoy the family atmosphere here. I came from a small company called US Industrial Automation.

Describe your background any past employment and how that has helped you in your current
position.
When I worked for USIA, I built sub-assemblies, ordered parts, inventory, panel building and testing product. I think that the knowledge I learned there, made for an easy transition to Olympus Controls. I’m using that knowledge everyday with Olympus controls, and learning more.

Describe some of your hobbies – what do you like to do outside of work?
I like to camp (Timothy Lake is my favorite spot), wrench on cars, and BBQ. Over the last three years I have worked on my own rub, BBQ sauce.

Do you have a favorite Sports Team?
Since I was 7 year old I have followed the Miami Dolphins. Win or lose!

Has anything exciting or interesting ever happened to you?
I traveled from Michigan to Oregon to pursue a relationship with a sweet girl, who would later become my loving wife.

What is one thing your customers might find surprising about you?
I’m a BBQ Pitmaster in my spare time
