WHO ARE YOU?
I am a University of Missouri Rolla graduate with a degree in electrical engineering. I work in our automation group, and when I’m not making a process better, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing golf.

WHAT DO YOU DO?
I work with process control, batch reactors, and sequencing systems. In other words, I make our engineers’ designs actually work.

FAVORITE ESC MOMENT?
Working as a team on a challenging project and being able to exceed expectations.

WHAT DO YOU DO?
I create programming and graphical interface solutions using my electrical engineering and physics degrees.

FAVORITE ESC MOMENT?
Onsite during a 1:00 a.m. startup, watching Mike and Willy have a "frank exchange of opinions" about which direction a valve rotates.

WHO ARE YOU?
I’m a mechanical engineer working in our automation group. I am outnumbered at home, with a wife and two teen/preteen daughters. My time is spent getting my daughters to their various sporting events and activities. In my spare time, I go to work.

WHAT DO YOU DO?
I program industrial equipment and assist clients with their equipment needs. A private pilot, I question why am I still driving my kids everywhere.

FAVORITE ESC MOMENT?
When Lori's nieces gave Willy a Christmas card with a crayon drawing of Willy with a flat top wearing a skirt.

WHO ARE YOU?
Having surrounded myself with just the right type and amount of people at work and at play, I’m in the middle of my life and happy. I enjoy competitive shooting and binge-watching t.v. shows. To solidify my job security at ESC, I married a co-worker.

WHAT DO YOU DO?
I’m an interpreter. I speak “machine” to client and “client” to machine. Every day is a family reunion working with my wife and my brother Ricky.

FAVORITE ESC MOMENT?
I really enjoy how we work as a team. It is exciting to participate in what ESC’s future holds.
