The majority of my 26 year engineering career has been focused on New Project Introduction (NPI) activities, initially as an Industrial/Manufacturing Engineer, then as a Manufacturing Program Manager. Along the way, I also functioned as a Quality Manager, establishing and maintaining an ISO9001 certified Quality Management System. Helping launch a variety of complex electro-mechanical devices worldwide, and standing-up manufacturing lines both domestically and overseas, I have a deep appreciation of the complexities and challenges of taking a product from concept to reality while maintaining a customer/quality focus along the way.
BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT SIGMADESIGN: The variety of interesting projects and working with talented, motivated teams of great people.
FIRST JOB: Morning paper route in the Midwest. Pretty good gig for an 8th grader, until it snows too deep to ride your bike, and have to walk the route!
FAVORITE LEISURE ACTIVITY: Anything outside, but my favorites are water skiing, downhill skiing, golf, and backpacking.
FAVORITE FOOD: Probably a tie between Mac n’ Cheese and Dark Chocolate
FAVORITE BOOK: Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck (especially the first few chapters).
