How long have you been at ACS?

1 year

What do you like best about working at ACS so far?

It allows me work with great technology and expand my knowledge of manufacturing capabilities on a daily basis. I also just love the work-environment that ACS provides because everyone is always willing to help.

Can you tell us a little about your background and how it helps you in this position?

I graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2017 with a Bachelor in Mechatronics Engineering. Considering my major is technologically focused, it has given me a better grasp of how systems can be integrated and what applications automation can help to improve. 

What are some key lessons you have taken from your career thus far?   
Time-management and organization are key factors in any workplace. However, as a sales engineer, these two aspects are much more important to making sure that projects are kept up with and run smoothly.

Describe some of your hobbies – what do you like to do outside of ACS?

I believe one of my biggest hobbies would have to be bowling. I received my first bowling ball for Christmas a few years ago, and it sparked a love for the game that I had never had before.

What is one thing your customers might find surprising about you?

I consider myself a talented artist. I have been sketching since I was 10, and in high school, I became interested in the wood-burning art medium.

Do you have any trips planned soon?

I plan to make a trip to Japan in 2020 to locate and connect with some of my grandmother’s family that I have never met before.

What’s your favorite place in or near Atlanta?

As I have grown older, the answer to this question has changed. I think that currently one of my favorite places in the Atlanta Metro area would be Smyrna, which is where I currently live. The downtown atmosphere and surrounding area has a lot going on, and it is hard to find a day where there is not some sort of event happening.
