Welcome to our “Inside DME Forensics” blog series. Over the next few weeks, each DME Forensics team member will introduce him/herself by going over a short list of interview type questions (some professional & some personal), in an effort to best describe who is it that you talk to when you call and/or email us!

What do you do at DME Forensics? Software Engineer. I work on Reverse Engineering with DevOps teams.
Please describe your current “work from home” setup: I converted a bedroom into home office. I have a standing desk next to a big window with good sunlight. It has nice view of Longs Peak on a clear day.
What are your credentials/experience for working in your position? I have worked over 25 years in software engineering for a range industries, including e-commerce, biotech and bioinformatics, e-book conversion and production, credit card sales and processing, and offender management for the DOC.
What do you like about working at DME Forensics? DVR Examiner is a great product and provides an important service to the community, and my co-workers are technically excellent, motivated employees, so I’m very proud to be part of the team!
What is your background? I grew up in the mid-west, and went to school at Purdue University. I started working professionally in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, but I moved to Colorado about 25 years ago and have lived up and down the front range during that time.
What are the values that drive you? “If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values; they’re hobbies.” — Jon Stewart
Passion and commitment to your work. Trust and respect for your team. Patience and forgiveness with yourself.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? I love all the outdoor activities we have access to in Colorado, especially camping and bicycling. I play a lot of board games and probably too many video games. I am a enthusiast astronomer and love astrophotography. I enjoy cooking at home more than eating out, and like to make complicated, fancy mixed drinks on occasion.
