WHICH OFFICE DO YOU WORK IN? ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM THE AREA?

I work in the Denver sales and marketing office, but I am orginally from the Detroit, Michigan area, specifically Pontiac.  Pontiac is about 30 minutes northwest of Detroit, and is the home to the Silverdome—while it still stands.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN Denver? 

Little Man Ice Cream shop. Need I say more?

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN Product management & IT?

20+ years. I started working for a power equipment manufacturer out of college, and found that to be extremely boring—there haven't been any new developments in power equipment pretty much since the industry started. From there I went on to working in telecom where I would discover my love and interest in data communications. Data communications enables or promotes commerce, and I found that fascinating.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WORK PROJECTS? LEAST FAVORITE?

I have a lot of favorites, but I'll try to narrow it down. I like bringing structure to previously unstructured environments and putting together competitive analysis information sheets. Recently I have been working towards becoming a Certified Ethical Hacker to help with research into the needs for security services.

I haven't had a least favorite project yet.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?

I love working on my family history / genealogy project and planning our family reunions, but I also have a love for NCAA basketball (GO WOLVERINES) and cars.

Where did your love of cars come from / when did it start?

Well, I'm from Detroit, so I've loved cars my entire life.
1967 Shelby GT350

IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT, WHAT KIND OF CAR WOULD YOU GET?

I could go for a '74 Corvette Stingray or '69 Mustang Mach 1. My absolute favorite mustang is the '67 Shelby GT350.

THREE DAYS AT A RESORT WITH SPA TREATMENTS, OR THREE DAYS CAMPING IN A SECLUDED SPOT IN THE MOUNTAINS?

What kind of camping is this? Cabin, with running water, a bathroom, no bugs, and right on the lake? Or is this tent camping? Because if it's tent camping then put me down for the resort!

DONUTS OR BAGELS?

Cake donut any day, especially with ice cold milk or fresh apple cider. But if that donut is jelly filled, then get me a bagel.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT WORKING AT GREEN HOUSE DATA?

The people. They are friendly, warm, engaged, and care about the customers.
