I started at ISI in June 1982. I began in Cabinetry on 2nd shift and did that for several years. In 1987 I took over as lead man for Cabinetry. In 1989, ISI purchased the first KOMO CNC; Blaise Huberty and I were the operators. In the
summer of 1990, I started programming the KOMO CNC, and have been ever since. In 2012 ISI purchased the Gerber CNC fabric cutter. I helped with the set up and programming of it. I am currently the CNC Program Supervisor.
I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that don't work.
I am 48 years old and have been married for 26 years to my wife, Lisa, who is an art teacher at Fond du Lac High School. I have three kids: Jarred, 24 years old, is a full time mechanic at a Hyundai car dealership in Fond du Lac. Jessica, 22 years old, is a student at UW-Eau Claire, double majoring in Education and teaching French. Jace, 19 years old, is a student at Marquette and majoring in Mechanical Engineer.
My hobbies are camping and family vacations. We went to Yellowstone and saw the first KFC in Kentucky, Mt. Rushmore, Black Hills-South Dakota, Las Vegas, Bad Land-South Dakota, Washington DC, Indiana sand dunes, and Disney in Florida.
I like to help with our youth program at Hope Lutheran Church and am currently chairman on the board of youth.
I have been a volunteer Firefighter and Emergency Medical Responder for 21 years, and am currently the Assistant Chief for the Fire Department and EMR coordinator for the First Responders.
