Why did you choose to work at Simformotion?
I love being able to help with the continued development and improvements of our training simulators. When I was managing people, I felt disconnected from the actual products. When this Project Coordinator position became available, I felt it was an opportunity to be able to get back in the trenches. I felt I was the perfect fit for the role.
What are your responsibilities? How do you support Simformotion customers?
I am responsible for working with CSE Software, Caterpillar and customer teams to define, develop and test our simulator products prior to them going to production. I work with these teams on everything from minor changes to support requests to entire simulator releases.
What are some of your goals?
I have one goal, which is to help make Simformotion the best simulator team in the industry.
Tell us about your professional experience.
I started at CSE right out of college in 1997 as a software developer. My first move was in 2010 when I was asked to be a part of the simulator development team. I was one of the original four team members and have been part of the simulator team ever since. I worked a couple years of project management, then became the 3D Team Lead in 2018. At the end of 2021, I was asked to become part of the Simformotion Team and here we are today.
How do you learn about new technologies?
TikTok of course. 😊
What have your years of professional experience taught you?
You can’t make everybody happy all the time.
What has been your biggest accomplishment professionally or in life?
I have had the pleasure to be with one company my entire 25-year professional career. I have been very lucky to be able to move around within CSE and Simformotion, take on new opportunities and learn new skills. From my personal life, I am proud of the family my wife and I have created. And my Christmas light show.
