Sr. Manager Technical R&D, Heartland Tanning Inc.
I started with Heartland Tanning in the spring of 2000. The industry was growing rapidly; Heartland was manufacturing a stand-up tanning system and a few bed models. The T-Max® system was becoming the industry standard for tanning salon timers, with all the issues a new product brings. My background in electronics, lighting, components and control systems made me a good fit for a role in the tanning industry.
I was a cook at Long John Silver’s, frying fish and hushpuppies.

I hope to see Alaska because of its raw, natural beauty and because it is one of the last states in the U.S. that I have not visited.
I like “old” things – Coleman lanterns, wind-up clocks, vintage cycles – especially if they are not working and need to be fixed or repaired.
They’re not “possessions” but for me, family, friends and time to relax are most prized. I treasure an old hunting knife that I’ve carried every season for the last 47 years that was my grandfather’s. It reminds me of all the good times we had before he passed.
Loyal, hardworking, reliable.
