Chris, how has your background helped you at Automation, Inc.?

"I realized my interest in sales while serving tables through college.  My goal wasn’t to sell as much as possible, it was to get every table to laugh as a collective at least once.  The rest then fell into place."

What is your favorite thing about working at Automation, Inc.?

"I enjoy being exposed to new and different applications every day.  The people here are awesome, too."

What are some of your hobbies?

"I like to ride my bicycle. Hours are spent watching the thermometer on my smoker. Strategy games help me make it through the winter.”

What is one thing people may find suprising about you?

“I played guitar and sang in an Irish folk punk band for two seasons.  We played for a full crowd at Kieran’s Pub downtown Minneapolis on St. Patty’s Day 2016."

"A good friend and I went on a 2-week road trip in 2017.  We ventured out to DC, made our way down the Carolinas, and cruised back through Tennessee.  I got so sunburnt on the Outer Banks I couldn’t raise my arms above my shoulders for days.  We camped in the Appalachian Mountains for ultimate relaxation.  You can never have enough BBQ and seafood!"
