What is your Job Title?
Line 1 Lead

When did you join Elliott?

What do you like best about working for Elliott? Learning how our equipment works.

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment at Elliott? I have built some of the most complex equipment we produce.  I feel that is one heck of an accomplishment.

What is your favorite Elliott product and why?

The 34142 tracks unit, because when I first started building cranes that were the most intimidating unit to me. I was able to work with Engineering on documentation to make the build more streamlined. To put it simply, it’s my favorite unit because there is a lot of me in it.

What are your personal hobbies? My hobbies are very similar to what I do here. I love building. Woodworking, metal working, electrical, you name it. I just love to tinker in the garage.

What is your all-time favorite movie, band/musician, or TV series?

Movies: Back to the Future trilogy

Band: Alice in Chains

Show: MacGyver, the original series from the 80s

What is your favorite sport and team?  I’m not into sports so I don’t have a favorite.

Tell us about your family, pet(s), or give a fun fact about yourself!

I have a girlfriend of 10 years. We’ve known each other since we were 13 years old and dated briefly in high school. We have one son, and she has 3 daughters from a previous marriage. Her middle daughter just made us grandparents. We also have a red heeler named Axel.

Safety Reminder

When it comes to safety, being aware of site conditions and surroundings is key. Note obstacles such as power lines, traffic, and ground conditions. Ask yourself:

  1. Do you need to ask the electric company to de-energize and ground overhead power lines?
  2. Does passing motor vehicle traffic pose a risk?
  3. Is the ground able to support the equipment properly (including slope, compaction, and firmness)? Is cribbing necessary?

These are just several considerations to be discussed before starting a project. Ensure your team completes all necessary safety checklists prior to starting each and every job so that nothing is missed.
