1. What is a pre-COVID ARMA event you are looking forward to attending again?

The Central Texas Manufacturing Expo & Conference. I love seeing what everyone is up to!

2. If you won the lottery, what's one toy you would buy?

I think I have all the toys that I want. I would hire a car & driver to chauffeur me to all the places I need to go without the stress or hassle of driving & parking myself!

3. When you have 30 min of free time, how do you pass the time?

Studying wine facts for my upcoming WSET III (Wine, Spirits & Education Trust) certification exam.

4. Tell us something that might surprise us about you?

I’m a long time distance and ultra-runner. I’ve run 100 miles non-stop and have done several multi-day stage running events including running 163 miles through Big Bend carrying all my food & gear while dong it. (See pic). I also just published my first textbook: Design for Excellence in Electronics Manufacturing. It’s a great fit for ARMA members!

5. What are your top two work priorities?

Elevating our customer quality & quality communications program to provide white glove experiences to NI customers. Expanding our use of machine learning and automated tools to streamline our processes.

6. Any bold predictions for 2021?

Scientists and engineers will regain their credibility in the eyes of the broader population. It’s been a few tough years!
