What do you love about the Broadband industry?
Helping Broadband providers has allowed me to get to know many great people and brought me to truly unique places in rural America that I otherwise would have never experienced including South Georgia, the Grand Canyon of Arkansas, the High Desert of Arizona, and remote plains of northeastern Montana.
How has the industry evolved over your career, looking back what is most surprising?
Having dial up modem service was the hot technology when I joined the industry in 1997. Who would have ever imagined 1Gig circuits to the home and wirelessly streaming any series, movie or YouTube video from your family room? It’s hard to believe higher bandwidth services are on their way.
What does your favorite Saturday look like?
Doing anything outside around the house and hiking in a nearby glacial mound forest preserve near my home.
How hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
Visiting my adult children with my wife in Pittsburgh and North Carolina, backpacking and skiing in Colorado with my children, and elk hunting with family members in southwest Montana.
Tell us something about yourself people may not know?
I’ve spent time multiple years living in the four US Time Zones. I spent 15+ years coaching and as a league commissioner in our local youth soccer organization.
What was your 10 year-old-self’s dream job?
To work as a forest ranger in Montana. I missed the American West when my family moved from Montana to Iowa during grade school.
Why are you excited about working at Precision Group?
It’s exciting to be part of a growing company with great team members committed to doing the right things while working closely together.
Do you have a motto or personal mantra?
One person’s vinegar can be another’s wine.
