Can you please give us a brief introduction of who you are and your current business?
I am a Navy veteran originally from PA. I moved to NC last year to take a job starting up a Metrology Lab in a brand new Biotech Facility. I have one child – a 25 year old son who lives in Knoxville, TN with his girlfriend, but they are planning a move to NC next year. I also have 4 dogs who made the move from PA with me. I’m a big sports fan – hockey is my favorite but also football and college basketball. I love to travel. Between the Navy and my work, I’ve been to 43 states and over 20 countries. I hope to check the other 7 states off my bucket list one day soon.
Why did you join BPW?
I wanted to meet some new people and find ways to get involved in my new community.
What are your favorite hobbies or interests outside of work?
I like bowling and golf and trying new things.
What is your favorite super hero and why?
It’s probably Batman because I spent so much time watching different versions of him with my son when he was little. I think Christian Bale is my favorite Batman from the movies, but I also have a soft spot for Michael Keaton, being from Pittsburgh.
What chores do you hate doing?
I don’t like dusting or washing windows.
What did or do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to transition into Project Management once I finish my degree later this year.
If you could learn to do anything what would it be?
I always wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument, specifically guitar or piano.
How do you define success?
I think of success as that feeling you get when you’ve accomplished a difficult task or finished a grueling journey.
What can BPW do to support you in your career journey?
I would like to get to know BPW members to learn about their careers and businesses and see where we can support each other.
