Getting to Know You Q&A:
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
A: Hearing of a need from customers, designing and programming a solution to that problem, and seeing the customers put that solution to use.
Q: What did you do before working for Keystone?
A: I was a student. This is my first job out of school. In school I did work as a lab assistant, helping other students debug their Assembly, C and Pascal programs.
Q: What are your hobbies outside of work?
A: I'm very active in my church, both working in teaching ministries, and working with the technology needs of the church. I am also the Secretary/Treasurer of a non-profit cemetery association, so I am actively involved in the management and operation of the cemetery. Otherwise, I do yard work, odd jobs, and garden work at our home in Raleigh and my home-place in Benson. We always had a large vegetable garden, and my Dad and I raised collards, a tradition I carried on after my Dad passed. I stopped most of that recent years, but hope to get back on my tractors in the near future.
Q: If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go?
A: Home. I don't get to spend as much time at either of the places that I call home as I would like. Otherwise, I'd just like to spend a while traveling across the country, seeing the sights I've never seen and seeing how agriculture is done across our land.
Q: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
A: We have four cats – Maggie, Wendy, Teddy, and Stanley. We had not intended on adopting a fourth cat, but Stanley just showed up as a skinny stray a few days after Teddy got out. He's now a plump, happy part of the family.
Wendy is a sweet calico.
Teddy is a black and white tuxedo kitty. He like lounging on laps.
Maggie is a grey tabby.
Stanley is a light orange tabby.
