Previous Lives:

  • 1995-present: various positions at Cirrus

The most exciting moment while working at Cirrus was…being promoted to CEO. There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction involved in talking to customers about what they need, coming up with a way to satisfy that need, developing the product and winning the socket vs. some tough competition.

The one object in my office that most reflects my personality is…a big LCD TV hooked up to a PS3 so that employees are encouraged to stop by and say, “Hi.”

Current in my CD changer (or iPod)…Foo Fighters, Nickelback, Sammy Hagar, Nelly Furtado, Joss Stone, Chili Peppers, Guns, AC/DC.

When I'm not at work, you can find me…enjoying all that Austin has to offer. I live in the middle of downtown and it is pretty rare that I don't catch a show on the weekend.
