Q. What is your title?
A. Automation Specialist focusing on motion and inspection products.

Q. How long have you been with Ramco?
A. I have been with Ramco for 3 years!

Q. What is your favorite food?
A. If there is one food I could eat everyday it would be, without a doubt, sushi! I would be broke…but happy!

Q. What is your favorite book?
A. Book … does Mopar Magazine count? I hate to say it but I haven’t sat down and recreationally read since high school. Even back then I only read the first chapter, last chapter, and the back cover. I almost got away with this method on an oral book report. Almost. I probably should have made sure that someone else in the class didn’t read the same book before I tried to make up what happened in the parts I didn’t read.

Q. What is your favorite movie?
A. In the spirit of Christmas… National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Still makes me laugh every time I watch it.

Q. What is the song that always makes you happy?
A. La Bamba! When I was a kid I would listen to that song while riding in the tractor with my dad and dance. Still to this day it puts a smile on my face!

Q. What is a fun fact about yourself?
A. When I am not working, I am out in my garage either building something out of wood or working on my car. I haven’t had much time to spend in the garage since the arrival of my daughter Zoey though. Before Zoey arrived, I restored a ’74 Plymouth Barracuda in the garage of my townhouse. When I purchased my house my two requirements were a two stall garage and basement for parts storage. The first night I stayed in my house I rolled my car into the garage (just the shell and the engine) and slept on the living room floor in a sleeping bag. For the next three years I worked on the car, and I finally finished it just in time for my wife and I to drive away from the church in it on our wedding day. We’ve enjoyed nightly cruises in the Barracuda with our two dogs and will now be making accommodations for a car seat for Zoey.
