When did you join Elliott?
January of 2013

What do you like best about working for Elliott? To start, I love working for a family-owned business. Aside from that, the department I’m in is also great. I have an awesome boss and coworkers, and we all work great as a team.

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment at Elliott? I started off working in the IT department. I then moved to turret assembly and now I’ve ended up in the aftersales department. So, I guess just moving up in the company.

What is your favorite Elliott product and why?

I would have to say the L65. It’s just a great and dependable unit.

What are your personal hobbies? I love getting the kids outdoors and going fishing. In the last couple of years, I’ve also developed a love for cooking. I try making new things, and getting the kids involved makes it all the more fun. I also really enjoy playing poker, but I think that’s mostly for the time I get to spend sipping whiskey and hanging out with friends.

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

That’s a tough one. I’ll just give some of my favorites:

Movies: The Princess Bride, Old School, and Anchorman

Bands: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jason Mraz, Led Zeppelin, and Dean Martin/The Rat Pack

TV Shows: Game of Thrones, Seinfeld, and The Walking Dead

What is your favorite sport and team? Nebraska Huskers and the Chicago Bears

I love spending time with my family. I have 4 kids: Aurora (15), Bear (6), Gracie (5), and Scarlett (3) who keep me and my wife extremely busy. We also have a bernedoodle named Charlie.

Safety Reminder

While lifting seems like a risk-free activity, there are many potential hazards. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) more than one million workers experience back injuries each year, with 75% of back injuries occurring while performing lifting tasks. 

Here Are 5 Tips from OSHA on Proper Lifting!

  1. Plan. Before lifting anything, check your path to ensure the work area is flat, dry, and free of debris. Then determine the approximate weight of the object and whether or not it’s safe to lift on your own. 
  2. Stretch. Warming up before lifting can be the defining factor between an injury and gliding through your workload.
  3. Technique. To lift safely, you should stand as close to the load as possible, then bend your knees and keep your upper body upright so your legs do the lifting rather than your back. Look straight ahead and keep your back straight and shoulders back so you have a slight arch in your lower back.  

Carry.  Get a good grip on the load and use your feet to change direction, taking small steps as you go. As you change direction, lead with your hips and keep your shoulders in
