What keeps you professionally motivated?
Technology is always evolving, and design trends are always changing. Keeping up to date is a full-time job. But it’s totally worth it when you love what you do.
What is the most relevant thing you’ve learned from previous job experiences?
There’s inspiration everywhere. Constantly challenge yourself, never stop learning and never get complacent.
What do you do outside of work? What are you known for? What do you love?
I love working with my hands, so any project that allows me to wear my tool belt makes me a happy guy. I also love spending time in downtown Lancaster and taking in the local culture. I have 2 Boston Terriers, coach peewee soccer, homebrew my own beer and proudly speak fluent nerd.
