I love working at Toppan because we are a company that is dedicated to a mission and a tangible product. This is a refreshing change of pace for someone who came from the high-tech/information sector beforehand.
I was drawn to this line of work through the CHIPS Act. This legislation was introduced to me during my Graduate program, and I was blind to the fact that this booming industry was essentially in my backyard.
In the last month, I have been made aware of the revolution in our community college system surrounding our industry. Advanced Manufacturing is pushing to be at the forefront of very talented engineering candidates not following the traditional four-year university pathway.
If I could have anyone in the world be my mentor I would want Pat Riley. He is the current president of the Miami Heat, and a nine-time NBA Champion as a coach and executive.
The hobby that I am most passionate about is baseball. I enjoy coaching, watching, and teaching the game to people any chance I get. I feel great joy being at or around a baseball field.
The first concert I ever attended was Randy Travis and Josh Turner for my 8th Birthday.
