Get To Know

A good thing about where I live in Colorado:
We have four seasons, and in any one you are likely to experience a day of weather from one of the others.

Another good thing:
Roasted green chilis imported by the truckload from Hatch, New Mexico, then roasted and sold locally.

Something I know about besides engineering:
Rock music, from the classics of the 70’s, to hair bands, New Wave, grunge, and today’s alternative. I used to come home from school every day and listen to the radio.

Still my favorite band:
Pink Floyd.

My idea of a second honeymoon:
Re-creating a vacation from our first year of marriage 25 years later with a kid-free Disneyland trip.

My dogs:
Three rescues – Ollie, Mila and Louie – all of them sweet-natured with distinctive personalities.

Work achievement:
Becoming an equity owner at a company that values honesty, integrity, responsibility and listening.
