Tell us a little bit about your life at home.
I live with my wife, Morgan and son, Frankie in Media, PA. It’s been hectic the past 8 months while we adjust to being new parents, but it’s also been so fun and rewarding watching him grow even if we haven’t always got a full night’s sleep. Recently, Frankie started crawling around so we’re constantly chasing him around the house.
What’s your hometown?
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Also lived in State College; Detroit, MI; Philadelphia, PA; and Media, PA.
Where did you go to college?
What was the first job you got a physical paycheck?
I worked at Dairy Queen while in high school. I bet that I could still make most of the Blizzards excluding any of the new ones although I bet I could get close to the recipe knowing what ingredients they have.
How long have you been with Barton?
Two and a half years.
How does the ESOP impact you the most?
Provides a constant reminder that work directly impacts the success of our company.
What do you love most about your job?
There’s always a new challenge; no two projects are ever the same.
If I wasn’t an Engineer, I’d be?
Most definitely a professional golfer. Although I’m not sure I’d make many cuts… Maybe a professional placekicker? Although I’m not sure I’d make many field goals… I guess I’ll just keep doing this.
What’s your favorite sport (professional, college, or other)?
Baseball and unfortunately, I’m a Pirates fan.
When I’m not at work I’m doing……
Very slowly renovating my house. Currently, I’m working on replacing the lighting and ceiling in our kitchen.

Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai.
What’s your hidden talent?
I’m pretty good at Tetris.
What’s your favorite holiday and why?
Halloween because I like to eat the leftover candy.
What’s the best piece of advice that you’ve ever been given?
To speak slower when presenting technical information.
