What do you love about working with Lakeside?
I love working with an excellent company that provides top notch products and services and I love working with good people who conduct business with integrity. Working in an atmosphere where people care more about others and the quality of our work than about money is a breath of fresh air.
Tell me about your Family.
I am married to my wife, Shelby, of just over a year and a half. I am the oldest of 4 kids, two boys and two girls. One of my sisters lives in St. Louis, my other sister lives in Chattanooga, TN and my brother lives in Pinedale, WY. My parents live in Southern Illinois where I grew up. Shelby has one older brother; he and his wife live down the road from us with their two young children. Shelby’s parents live outside of Hannibal. From where we live we’re able to see each side of our family frequently which is a huge blessing.
In addition to being paid, how else has your career created value in your life?
To this point my career has challenged me to persevere in pushing through stressful seasons and made me tougher. It’s helped reinforce a love of learning. It has given me an outlet to exercise creativity and combines a number of past work experiences and areas of interest in a way that gives me a lot of enjoyment in the work I do.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
My wife and I enjoy riding bikes together, hiking and generally most things outdoors. We love eating good food and trying new restaurants. On week nights we like to watch home improvement shows like Fixer Upper or Hometown and we usually have a sitcom we’re working through. My very favorite thing to do is snow skiing, but I also enjoy white water kayaking and rock climbing. I’ve recently started bow-hunting and made my first bow kill earlier this fall.
What is your greatest hope?
My greatest hope is to steward well the blessings and resources God has given me, whether relationships, time or material things. I hope to live with an attitude of gratefulness and in a way that displays God as most valuable to me.
What do you want to accomplish while working here?
I want to continue learning about my field and the construction trades and become a true professional in my role. I want to deliver excellent service to my customers and add value to the company through the customers I bring on board.
