I also enjoy working on our internal systems and processes allowing us to deliver a more consistent product to our clients.
Hometown and how did you end up where you are? Whitefield, NH, a small town in the White Mountains is where a spent my time growing up as a kid. I have spent most of my life around the New England states. Recently spent a year in Florida, but was not happy, missed the seasons and the mountains. My wife and I were looking to start a new adventure and had always been intrigued with the Alaska, so we decided to look for employment in or around Anchorage. Six months later, here we are.
How did you end up at Weston? I was looking to start a new adventure in life, reached out to a company that seem to fit my values and philosophy.
