What is your current role at Inland? Have you held other roles prior to your current position?
Quality Engineer and Lab Supervisor since January 2020. Hired as a Packaging Engineer on Inland Packaging's R&D Team in September of 2019.
What impact does your role have on our customers?
My primary responsibility is helping to ensure customers receive products that fall within specification through management of Inland's quality systems and materials testing lab.
What aspects of your job do customers see?
Hopefully quality product! If there are quality issues with a product, I may be part of the team that works with our customers to identify root cause and corrective actions.
What is your favorite product that Inland produces and why?
In-mold labels. Before joining Inland, I didn't know they existed. It's amazing the amount of engineering/science behind making a quality in-mold label.
Before working at Inland, what was the most unusual or interesting job you've ever had?
I worked in a couple different foundries for about 9 years as a Foundry Engineer. In that role, I designed tooling and processes for producing iron castings (fire hydrants, pump housings, axle housing, etc) weighing up to a few thousand pounds.

Boating on the Mississippi River with my family.
Where's your favorite place in the world?
My family's cabin near Ashland, Wisconsin.
Which four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?
Vince Lombardi, Albert Einstein, George Carlin, and Tom Petty. I think they'd all have differing, but interesting world views to share in conversation.
