What do you like best about your job?: I like to see the new technology that is released and how the new technology and products will integrate into our lives and where these new technologies will take us.
Favorite hobby: My favorite hobby is Golf, it gets me outdoors and at the end the day how good or bad you play depends only on you.
Last book you read: A Song of Ice and Fire (the Game of Thrones books)
Favorite consumer tech device: My Bose QC35 noise canceling headphones. Whether I am traveling or just need to escape for a little bit, wearing them allows me to tune out the outside world and concentrate on what is most important at that time.
What you’d be doing if you weren’t in tech: I would be working as an accountant
What’s your outlook for the CE industry for the next five years?: The CE industry has a bright future, as 5G comes to market devices across the board will need to be upgraded and built to live in that environment. With these changes will come more capability and requirements for all products and I am excited to see where that pushes the industry R&D and future products.
