What do you like most about working at Midtronics?

​The team effort.  In my previous jobs a lot of pressure to complete tasks or solve problems was placed on individuals with limited support.  Midtronics encourages working as a team which has helped me not only complete tasks but it helps me get a broader perspective on ways of looking at problems and engaging customers. 

​What is a favorite memory you have from your time at Midtronics?

My favorite memory is from the 2016 AAPEX when the whole MDX team watched Game 7 of the World Series together.  I had always wanted to watch the Cubs win the World Series with my family so it was hard not to be home.  But being with the MDX team made it very special. 

​What personal accomplishment at Midtronics are you most proud of?

I am very proud of being a part of the teams working with the Retail customers and the successes we have accomplished so far like the JDT deployments at Advance and Walmart. 

​How do you like to spend your time when you are not at work?

When I am not at work I am with my family mostly taking my kids to activities and sports.  I also enjoy watching the Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears and Iowa football

​What are your hobbies?

Before kids I used to play softball, volleyball, golf and bowl.  Now I am (happily) a kid taxi.  

​Do you have any pets?

We have three cats.  Penny, Bolt and Moon.

​Do you like movies?  What kind?  What is/are your favorite(s)?

Most people know that I am a huge Science Fiction and Action Movie fan.  I love Star Wars, Star Trek, The Fast and Furious movies and all of the Marvel Movies.  Top movie of all time…The Empire Strikes Back. 

Do you like music?  What kind?  What is/are your favorite(s)?

I enjoy rock music.  My favorite bands are Def Leppard, U2, Train and Imagine Dragons. 

What is your favorite food?

Dessert.  I am not very picky about what kind. 

​What is something you think other people would be surprised to know about you?

During the COVID-19 home confinement, I have started to sketch again in my free time.
