What do you like most about your job?

I like the variety Alliant Systems offers. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and getting to work with a lot of awesome people throughout my apprenticeship. As well as learning a wide variety of hands on skills. It’s been a great experience. 

What did you do before you came to work here?

Before I started my apprenticeship, I worked for a plastic pipe manufacturer.  Basically I drove around in a big forklift most the day and loaded up semi trucks.

What do you like to do on the weekends?

On the weekends I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, getting outside and exploring new areas, hanging out with friends and family, and also just being lazy relaxing at home.

Where did you go on your last vacation?

My girlfriend and I just got back from Cancun at the end of September.

What is something unique or surprising about you?

I don’t know, I guess my age? People are usually surprised to find out I’m in my 30’s, they think I'm younger than I am.

Sports?

I’ve been an avid skateboarder since I was a kid. I don’t skateboard as much these days but I still enjoy doing it when the weather is nice. In the winter time I enjoy driving up to the mountain and snowboarding, too. Other than that I’ve recently had some fun learning how to boulder (basically rock climbing but without any fall protection or ropes) with some friends.

When you were a little kid, what did you want to do when you grew up?

When I was a kid I was really into skateboarding, which eventually lead to my passion for film and photography. For the longest time I wanted to make a career out of filming skateboarding, but it’s a really hard business to get into if you want to make a living. 

Do you have any pets?

Yes. My girlfriend and I have two cats. We love them but they drive us crazy sometimes!

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

I really enjoy playing the guitar so I’ve been trying to get better at that recently. I’m also very much into photography so I like going out and taking pictures when I can.
