How many years have you been with the company?

I have worked at ASC for 22 years, since 2-14-1994.

What is your current job title?

My current position is Contracts Administrator.  I was first hired as a part-time Accounting Clerk through WSU Co-Op Program.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy working with both internal and external customers. Everyone is great to work with. Everyone understands and does their best to take care of the customers since we still remembered Charlie Peer always remind us “the customer is the boss”.

Tell us about any mentors you’ve enjoyed working with over the years:

Ken Seaman was very helpful to me especially the last several years before his retirement.  Vicki has also been helpful during my early years at ASC.

Tell us about your family:

We are a family of four.  My wife is Amanda, daughter Sindy, and son Adam.  Amanda loves to cook.  She often learns new dishes for us to try.  She also loves to help others.  She constantly tries to raise money by selling eggrolls to help the elderly and children in Vietnam.  Sindy is 19. She’s attending Butler and working part-time at ASC.  She hopes to be a successful Entrepreneur one day.  Adam is 9 and wants to grow up to do something to help the world (At least that’s what he says this week).  He loves to read, play outdoors and spend time with dad.  As a family, we enjoy spending time together on vacation to see different places in the US or go back home to see our relatives in Australia and New Zealand.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to go to the YMCA to exercise (take Yoga, Pilates or PiYo classes), read or just spend time with family and friends.

What is the last book you read?

Australia:  Boom To Bust by Lindsay David.

Who is the person you’d most like to meet?

I would like to meet the Pope. Although I am not religious, I am amazed and respect how down to earth he is even being one of the most powerful people in the world.

What’s your favorite restaurant and why?

We love Texas Road House.  They have the best prime rib in town.  The service is fast and courteous. We have never had a bad experience over the years.

What’s your favorite vacation destination/activity?

My favorite destination is Sydney, Australia.   I like to spend time at the crystal clear water at the beach with Adam.
