Do you have any hidden talents? If so, what are they?
My super useless talent is that I can remember the names of most actors that I see in a movie. It's not cool.

What has been your greatest accomplishment with TMI?
I've had the opportunity to work with multiple departments and people across the company to roadmap and implement production automation within our current production environment. It's been a fantastic learning experience which has allowed me to really understand how the company works and how all the various systems connect to each other.

What do you find most unique about this company?
The production process for tattoos is pretty unique, but I think the most unique thing about the company is the people. There's a strong commitment to constantly improve, iterate, and succeed.

Who is your greatest influence? Why?
My wife Marcy. She worked at TMI for over 10 years as the creative director for the Savvi Department and she's super talented in design and organization. I always bounce ideas off her and am constantly in awe of her abilities.

If you were to go back in history, who would you be and why?
Definitely Wyatt Earp or someone who observed the OK corral gunfight. When I went to Tombstone for the first time I always wondered what that must have felt like and where the truth in the legend really is. Plus cowboys, gunfights, and the old west are super cool.
