What is your current role at Inland? Have you held other roles prior to your current position?
I am a Field Services Specialist for pressure sensitive, shrink, and flexible packaging.
What impact does your role have on our customers?
I recommend materials and methods for our customer's labeling application. I trouble shoot and suggest methods to improve productivity.
What aspects of your job do customers see?
Our customers appreciate the knowledge I have from 30+ years in the industry. I speak the same labeling language and understand problems and concerns.
How does your role impact our products?
I bring back the customer's production lines specifications and research and recommend what materials we should use. I go to the customer's facility to help setup the line for the best possible results.
Where can we find out outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy camping with my wife and grandsons. I like the relaxing atmosphere and conversations around the campfire.
Who inspires you?
My dad, he came from a poor family with 3 brothers and 2 sisters. He put himself through college at Ohio State University. He was hands on and would fix anything himself. My dad passed away in March of this year. They say you don't really appreciate things until they are gone and that is my case with my dad. I hope and aspire to be as good as a person as my dad. 
What are you passionate about?
This may sound crazy, but printing. I was involved in the developments in Flexo Printing. From solvent and water based inks, UV inks, and LED UV inks and the challenges they posed. It seems the field is improving at a rapid pace.
What is your favorite family tradition?
Before Christmas dinner, we eat Christmas Crackers and all wear paper crowns that come inside of the crackers while eating. There is a lot of laughing and good times.
