What do you like about working at a company that designs medical products?
Working on products that can directly improve people’s lives is extremely rewarding. Medical products also pose additional challenges such as understanding all the users: clinicians, nurses, patients, and even other family members. Knowledge of all of the environments and infrastructure available in healthcare and research. Additionally, it is essential to understand other sciences such as chemistry, physiology and biology. This has made me extremely well rounded and ensures continuous learning of all of these facets of medical products.

What hobbies or non-work activities are you most passionate about?
Outside of work I stay busy riding and racing my off-road motorcycle all over the county. If I am not on my dirtbike, then I can be found tinkering on something with a motor or performing a “not recommended for DIY” household project.

I was born in New Hampshire, briefly lived in Iowa, and finished growing up in Massachusetts.
When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
In the pre-school days I wanted to be a “telephone repair person”. I was obsessed with wires and trucks, so what better profession could exist!
