Five Things About...
Hometown: Valencia, CA
What do you enjoy most about your profession?
We focus on the field and the field workflows and I find that it’s so rewarding. So many other software providers really focus on the office and their workflows. When I used to travel to all the tradeshows for Raken, I’d have so many Foremen and Superintendents tell me how amazing this app is and how long they’ve wished that something like this existed just for them. To summarize, I love being able to help the hardworking people who build our world!
What project or job are you most proud of? Why?
The project I’m most proud of was our Raken Holiday Elves project from last year. We went around to visit some of our local customers on the jobsite, and in the office. We brought holiday cheer in the form of a poem and cookies! One of Raken’s guiding principles is “Have Fun!” and that’s why I love my job, is because we do have fun!
What's the best piece of advice you have ever received??
Best management advice I ever got: “Give praise in public, punish/give feedback in private”
If you could only take one tool to a job site with you, what would it be?
My phone or tablet with the Raken app installed ;-) Shameless plug haha
What do you like to do when you aren't working?
I love the outdoors, hiking, fishing, surfing, and taking my motorcycle for a cruise.
