As Materials Manager at ISI for the past five years, I have had the privilege of overseeing some very dedicated and outstanding procurement professionals. My staff and I handle all aspects of the procurement function which include day-to-day tactical responsibilities,
to long term strategic projects. Even though I spent most of my life growing up in the Milwaukee area, this Midwestern boy decided to venture out west to college. I spent four years at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas where I earned my Bachelor of
All great change in America begins at the dinner table. -Ronald Reagan
Science degree in Business Administration. The four years spent in Las Vegas was quite an education, and I guess that should include the classroom learning as well. For example, everyone has their 15 minutes of fame, and mine occurred in
college by being an extra in a Huey Lewis & the News Video. Being parts of events like that make me still look back at my time in college as a complete blur, but also as some of the best times of my life.
I grew up in Milwaukee and spent most of my childhood pursuing my love of all outdoor sports. You name the sport, and I have probably tried it (well, except for maybe polo.) I have since tried to share this passion with my wife of 12 years and my two beautiful daughters. Sometimes I am successful in getting them to share my passion, and at other times they are all content with just doing the "girly" things. Oh well, I do keep trying.
I found myself coaching kids' soccer by accident. I volunteered to "help" one year, and the next thing I knew I was the head coach. I surprised myself when I found that I enjoyed working with the kids immensely, and now I am in my third year of coaching two different teams at a time.
