Q: Congratulations on your new position as our Service Manager! Tell me about your background.
A: Starting as a young kid, I have always been interested in electro-magnetism and rotating equipment. I assembled my first DC motor from a kit when I was 9. I received a Marine Technician Certificate from Universal Technical Institute. I was certified by many outboard motor manufacturers. I worked for marine dealerships for six years.

Before starting at WINCO, I spent 7 years as an overhead crane & hoist technician and quickly took on the role of Sales & Service Manager. At WINCO, I use my past experience to continually grow in the power generation industry, when troubleshooting units out in the field.

Q: Where is your favorite spot to hike?
A: My favorite places are in the mountains. There aren’t any mountains in Minnesota, so I have to settle for cliffs. The best place in MN are Blue Mounds State Park and the north shore of Lake Superior.

Q: Have any favorite fishing holes?
A: I have a lot of ‘sleeper’ spots I like to go to. I don’t tell anyone which lakes, to keep them from getting too crowded. I mostly like just being on the water.
