FAVORITE ASPECT OF YOUR JOB
I love the challenge of Operations which requires all of our employees and suppliers to execute with high quality every single day in order to deliver on time to our customers. We have a great team that has fun working together and shares high expectations for customer satisfaction.

FAVORITE BOOK
Since the primary time I dedicate to reading books is while driving, running or biking, the first requirement is that it be downloadable as an audio book. Recent books I’ve found helpful include Quick And Nimble: Lessons from Leading CEOs on How to Create a Culture of Innovation, by Adam Bryant, and Leadership and Self-Deception, by The Arbinger Institute, which I shared with our entire support staff and which has had positive results with relationships at both work and in personal lives.

EDUCATION
I have a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Engineering Management.

RECOGNITIONS
The large number of employees that have stayed with us since we opened the Tucson Manufacturing Division over 15 years ago, frequent positive customer feedback, and multiple statewide awards to Universal Avionics as "Manufacturer of the Year" are all great recognitions that our team is succeeding.

WHAT IT ALL MEANS TO YOU
I love going to work every morning to see what combination of technical and personal challenges the day will offer. I never lay awake at night worrying about problems, but often wake up and can’t get back to sleep thinking about all the exciting opportunities we have for improvement.
