As a West Coast Sales Representative, my primary role is to support our teams existing customers while identifying new customers and potential product lines in five geographic states (WA, OR, CA, ID, NV).  I communicate daily with TRI’s Purchasing Department enabling me to deliver the most competitive product and service our customer’s specific and unique needs.  These responsibilities enable me to work with a myriad of diverse customers where I can utilize my ability to work in a team environment and analyze numerous market trends and data points.

Tell us a little about your family:
I have been married to my wife, Morgan, since 2011 and we had our first daughter in 2013. Our Boston Terroir, Beans, fills out the family and keeps us on our toes on a daily basis.  Both of us are from Western Washington and moved back home to the area July 2017.  My Father has been in the Chemical Sales/Distribution industry for over 40 years and is the West Coast Regional Sales manager at TRI.  My Mother worked over 40 years in higher education in Human Resources/Admissions and retired in 2016.  Both have lived in the Pacific Northwest their entire lives and have been married for over 40 years.  My younger brother lives in Western Washington with his wife and works as a Journeyman Steamfitter.

Prior to TRI, I served on Active Duty in the US Army from 2003-2017 as an Air Defense Officer.  During that time I had the opportunity to serve in a plethora of positions from Platoon Leader, Executive Officer, Operations Officer, Commander, and ROTC Instructor.  I worked all over the continental U.S. as well as several countries in Southwest Asia.  These tremendous experiences taught me how to excel as an individual and a team member in a diverse and complex operating environment.

What sort of hobbies do you have?
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, camping, fishing and hiking.  I am an avid runner and staying active is really important to me.  My wife and I are huge Seattle Seahawks fans and really enjoy rooting them on Sunday’s in the fall.  We enjoy trying new places to eat in the Seattle area and exploring all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.  To relax, we enjoy grilling at home and having friend over to the house.

What is your favorite thing about working at TRI?
I enjoy working in a diverse team environment.  TRI allows me work with an awesome team while supporting the very diverse needs of our customers.

What would you like people to know about you?
I have a great sense of humor and enjoy learning new perspectives and ideas.  I personally obtain the most satisfaction when I meet my teammates and customer’s needs.  When the inevitable friction points arise I strive to “hunt the good” and present solutions as opposed to problems.
