Structured Cabling in Lake CharlesAs the VP of Structured Cabling my primary duties include Project Management & Estimation.  However, I do a little bit of everything here at National Networks, from making the coffee, to taking out the trash; whatever needs to be done I’ll do it! I guess that’s what happens when you’ve been here for as long as I have (7 years).  It’s like home to me. National Networks promotes a family atmosphere.  And the team here are truly my second family.

Speaking of family, I’ve been married for 22 years and have two sons. (They’ve moved out and are now on their own, which is kind of surreal for me.  I guess I’m not used to being an “empty nester” yet.)

I spend most of my free time playing disc golf with friends and competing in tournaments. My dream is to achieve the Triple Crown by hiking the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail.  As you can see I’m very goal oriented.

Here are some fun facts about me:

What fictional character do I relate to best? George Bailey from “It’s a Wonderful Life

If I had to listen to the same music forever, it would be anything from Coldplay.   

If I could have a superpower, I’d like to fly like Superman.

If I could choose anywhere in the world to travel it would be to Israel.

As a child, I wanted to be a policeman when I grew up.

My favorite food is fried chicken.

What electronic device can I not live without? A wristwatch.

My Words of Wisdom:

The Man in the Arena by Theodore Roosevelt

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man:

  • who is actually, in the arena,
  • whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
  • who strives valiantly;
  • who errs,
  • who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but
  • who does actually strive to do the deeds;
  • who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
  • who spends himself in a worthy cause;
  • who at his best knows in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and
  • who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
