My all-time favorite book is this because…: So many, but I’ll go with ‘Moby Dick.’ A simple story of one man’s obsession that contains so much more through a treasure trove of characters and commentaries.

What is your favorite thing about your job or the industry?: Building relationships has always been my favorite part of working in this industry. Although it has its share of complex personalities, the friendships I have gained over the years are priceless.

Briefly state what got you into the event technology industry: Playing in bands early in life helped me learn the technology, but when I was in college (like so many), I was broke, and Bob Gechter got me on with Crossroads Audio as a stagehand. That was my first real gig, and I spent the first 4 or 5 events coiling cable and moved on from there.

What professional accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?: I started with Alford in the warehouse, moved to a tech position, and then left... boomeranged back seven years later to a warehouse position, where I worked my way into the Sales position I am in today. The journey has been incredible.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve had in your career?: Leaving Alford. It was the most challenging career decision, and I feel blessed every day that I found my way back (and was let back in).
