Ian, how has your background helped in your role?

"Mechanics and electronics have always been a passion of mine, so having that background has helped shape my understanding of our product offerings and in turn improved my abilities to help our customers."

What is the best thing about your job?

"I really enjoy the breadth of personalities coming together to make everything work, I look forward to interacting with my coworkers and customers every day."

If you could switch jobs with anyone at Automation, Inc. who would it be?

"I would switch with a value added technician because while I enjoy working directly with customers, I do miss working with my hands and having the satisfaction of stepping back and looking at the project I built.

What do you like to do when you are not in the office?

"I am a big fan of the outdoors and try to go camping often during the warmer months. I have been teaching myself to play bass guitar for the last few years, and I enjoy playing video games from time to time."

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

"Invest it or otherwise file it away, it has to last somehow!"

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

"Traffic avoidance is a superpower, right? Alternatively, I would pick flight, for completely unrelated reasons."
