1. What was your childhood like?
My childhood was very quiet but filled with amazing family/friendships. Growing up with three sisters, I didn’t have to do much.

My mother was my hero and will always be because of the things she accomplished being a single mother and raising 4 kids all on her own.
3. What are your hobbies?
My favorite hobbies include fishing, video games, going to the gym, and hunting.
4. How did you end up in metrology? Did you go to school for it?
I did not go to school for metrology, but I worked in a small machine shop out of Wichita, KS and was part of the Portable CMM world there.
5. How did you come to be at API?
I worked in that CMM room in Wichita for a couple years, and we had an API Tracker. So, I already knew about the company and what they did. When a job opportunity came up it was perfect.
6.What are your roles and responsibilities with API?
I’m a sales engineer for North and South Central helping out Matt Ledger and Chris Scott wherever they need help supporting our customers. I’m responsible for getting a hold of customers past or present hoping to make sales and build relationships.
7.What sets API apart from other metrology companies in your mind?
API is always ahead of the game coming out with more advanced equipment.
8.What API Product or Service are you most excited to tell people about?
I’m most excited about the Laser Trackers and how far we have come to be able to sell such high-speed equipment. Also, 9D LADAR is crazy and an awesome opportunity for everybody looking to scan their products.
9.What about API’s future excites you?
We’re always moving forward with something bigger and better. It’s only going to keep on going up from here, and I’m excited for the equipment and opportunities.
10. What does “Nothing Beyond Measure” mean to you?
There’s nothing better than measuring and why not do it with our equipment!
