What’s your official title?
I don’t know…let me look at my badge [laughs]. I am a Field Engineer at Race.

Majority of installations, but a lot of the time, I could be digging in a ditch to help build a trench, or up on a pole attaching wiring. It’s kind of a jack-of-all-trades role.
What’s your day to day like?
My day-to-day could vary, it changes a lot. A lot of the time, I am driving to different locations. Or it could be splicing up on a telephone pole in the morning, and doing an install in the afternoon.

What do you like most about your job?
The fact it’s not monotonous. It’s in a ditch one hour and talking to a customer the next. I get to experience new things because fiber optics is the way to of the future.
Bonus Question: Do you have a secret talent?
It’s not really a secret…but I ride bulls. I am a professional bull rider on the weekends!
