My favorite projects at AquaPhoenix are the wiring part and the mounting part. I like the wiring because it keeps me busy and I just like the detail of it. So, I like the wiring part.
Q: What has been your most embarrassing moment at APS?
Well, the most embarrassing things probably I've seen here weren't for me personally, but for somebody else. They were trying to go out the door and they got their coat caught up in the door and they almost haha it looked crazy as hell trying to get out of it. It was pretty funny to me.
Q: What advice would you give to a new hire?
If a new hire came in, I would definitely tell them to ask as many questions as they can because sometimes it can be a lot to learn initially. Just ask questions to make sure the job gets done right.
Q: What is something most people don't know about you?
I'm a trader. I like trading Forex, cryptos online. I love that. I look at it all the time - every day to see what's going on in the markets.
Q: Any favorite line from a movie?
My favorite line from a movie would probably be; I like westerns, Clint Eastwood, "make my day" and he pulled out the 44 on them boys. Yeah, "Make my day."
Q: Which AquaPhoenix Core Value Stands out to you?
One of my favorite core values would be to Do the Right Thing. I feel like if you do the right thing, everything else will fall in place. Jobs will be done more efficiently. You do the right thing, everything else is right. So that's my take on it.
Q: What is your favorite food?
My favorite food - who doesn't like pizza, man? Pizza, pizza, pizza. Pepperoni. Pretty much everything except the crazy stuff like pineapple and spinach. I don't like all of that.
Q: Do you have pets?
My girl has a Shih Tzu puppy and we love that thing to death. He just runs around the house. He's so cute. Diamond, she named it Diamond. It's her pet actually, but it's ours.
