Favorite sports team: Seattle Mariners – There’s always next year…

Favorite Viking Project: In-rack sprinkler system at Simplot in Caldwell that protected frozen potato products at -10°. The project included 6 separate double inter-lock pre-action systems and over 2,500 sprinkler heads in the racks.


Spirit Animal: The online quiz says I am a bear… I do like to hibernate.

Defining Characteristic: What defines me more than anything is my amazing dad skills. I don’t mean to brag but my kids are awesome and I know I’ve played a significant role in their lives.

Favorite food: Give me a medium-rare prime rib with some creamy horseradish, a loaded baked potato and a cold beer and I will be a happy guy.

Hobbies: I really enjoy the game of baseball. I play a lot of rec league softball and coach my boys baseball teams. I also have a decent bobble head collection that continues to grow.
