I graduated from Union High School in Biggsville, Illinois. I attended Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg, Illinois, and received an AA in mechanical drafting and design with emphasis using AutoCAD. I have attend several classes over the years for industrial engineering, 5s and lean manufacturing.


I have a wide variety of engineering experience manufacturing the following products: ammunitions, spark plugs, steel stamping, various paint systems, Isocyanate foam cushion manufacturing and heavy equipment assembly.

“I enjoy my work at Align Production Systems because of the great team of people I work with and the wide variety of custom engineered products we manufacture to help companies safely move and manipulate heavy and oversized objects.”

What do I do when I’m not working

I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife Karen and our three boys. We volunteer quite a bit for our church and community events. We enjoy camping and vacationing when we have time. Often you’ll find us doing something together on our family’s small farm. I continue to collect farm toys, a hobby I started when I was in 8th grade.
