What led you to Beth Interactive?
Germany. When I was offered a physics post-doctoral fellowship in Bochum, Beth (my wife) and I jumped at the opportunity. Beth formed the company, and we prepared for our journey abroad.
As Beth Interactive expanded and we moved back to Chicago, I moved from academia to a small business doing materials design, then a company making maps for self-driving cars. During this time, I learned a lot about small business operations, management and solving technical problems. I joined the Beth Interactive team in 2022, and my role allows me to help Beth expand the business and solve daily problems. At Beth Interactive, I’ve found what I was always looking for: a fantastic group of people who care deeply about their team, clients and the amazing work they do.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love working with numbers and data to solve problems. In my role, I’m constantly thinking about how things fit together, trying out new ideas and helping solve issues that impact the company. With 20 years of experience in programming, applications, and using various tools to solve problems and construct systems, I love to help my colleagues find solutions to challenges.
Ask me about: Building a sauna in my basement! Beth and I had the great pleasure of traveling around Germany and finding amazing sauna resorts. When we settled into our condo, I built a large sauna in the basement to recreate our German experiences and keep warm and relaxed during Chicago winters.
