A little About your Family

Married to Andi since 2006. We have two kids, Stefan is 15 and Miracle is 13. We recently bought Stefan his first car, a 2004 Honda Accord with 220,000 miles on it!

What was your most unusual job before you started with HT?

In college I worked at Chuck E. Cheese. I did every job EXCEPT for putting on the Chuck E. costume. I was too tall and my feet were too big. But I was his bouncer! I may have been too tall to be Chuck E., but somehow, I managed to get inside and clean the sky tubes that ran along the ceiling. I also cleaned the outside of them and about gave my manager a heart attack when I accidently kicked the ladder over and had to drop down to the ground from 25+ feet up.

Favorite Beverage

Summer: Founders Rubaeus, Shorts Local’s Light, Fall/Winter: Perrin Black or Gold

Favorite Food

Sushi... and Oreos. Just not together.

Favorite Sport or Outdoor Activity

Kayaking & cycling. During the summer months I spend as much time as possible outside on my bike or in my kayak.

Fun Facts

Before jumping into the technology world, my career was in the nonprofit sector, and mostly in Oregon. I enjoy going back as often as I’m able to spend time with old friends and (of course) visit the Oregon Coast.

Last Thing You Googled?

Most of my time on Google is spent researching my prospects and clients. I enjoy reading news articles about them and learning more about their background.
