DISTek Employee Since:


What I love about my job:

I enjoy learning, and the experts with whom I work provide me ample opportunity to do so. I also enjoy solving problems of many kinds, and am often given the opportunity to delve into a mechanical or hydraulic problem outside my primary area of electrical expertise.
