What is your favorite thing about Express Scale Parts, Inc?
As a small business, we are afforded to the ability to provide " outside the box", custom packaging solutions for our customers. Some companies only provide stock equipment options. I enjoy the flexibility to provide end users with customer equipment that fits their needs.

What has been an inspiration to you in your life and why?
My dad was born and raised on a farm in a small town. He was the first person in his family to go to college and think bigger. Although, there is nothing wrong with farming, I certainly learned from my dad that you should never settle for anything less than your ultimate personal and professional dreams.

What is something that most people do not know about you? Or what would surprise people?
I was a PGA golf professional for 8 years prior to working for Express Scale Parts, Inc. Although, I don't get to play much anymore, I still have a great passion for the game.

What would you like people to know about you?
What is more important to me than anything is my integrity. I want our customers to know that I will never be the "upsell" guy. I will always work to provide our end users with equipment, parts and services that they need. Nothing more, nothing less.

What is the best compliment that you ever got?
My Senior year of High School I won the "Best Personality" award. Through the years, I have heard from many people that they enjoy my company and that I am easy to talk to. I know I have "my moments", but I am proud that I am able to lighten the mood when things get tough.

If you had unlimited time and resources, what hobby or skill would you wan to learn?
I would love to scuba dive around the world.

What are you most thankful for?
My wife, Angie and children, Cooper and Carson.
