How long have you worked at Olympus, where did you come from? A little history of how you got involved with Olympus?

Olympus Controls was my first engineering job out of school, and I started in July 2020. I got introduced to Olympus by searching for automation companies at the University of Wisconsin – Madison career fair. Getting the job offer to work in the Fremont office during the Wisconsin winter made moving to California an easy choice.

What do you like best about working at Olympus?

Getting to “play” with all the automation equipment. There is nothing more satisfying than watching one of your projects work how it was intended.

Describe some of your hobbies – what do you like to do outside of work?

I am trying to make it to every National Park in the Unites States. So far I have made it to 16, and California has plenty more to offer. During weekends I enjoy playing soccer, video games, and grilling out.

What are some key lessons you have taken from your career thus far?

Graduating and moving to California in a pandemic has taught me how to adapt to unforeseen situations on the fly.

What is one thing your customers might find surprising about you?

I am a huge Minnesota Vikings fan. I was also at the Minneapolis Miracle game.
