What is your personal quote?

What attracted you to Marick?

Initially it was that there was a group of people that recognized the value and importance of a well-trained workforce. Too often, training is overlooked or cut during times of difficulty. There couldn’t be a worse time to undervalue training. It’s that passion for training and workforce development that attracted me to Marick Group.

Experience

Jack-of-all-trades, master of a few. I began my career in advertising sales, but was quickly able to put my love for technology to use. For a number of years, I toiled between the board room and networking closet as a Networking Consultant. Wanting to apply the skills I learned, I spent some time as a business and technology instructor. That fueled my desire for corporate training, which led me to systems implementation and project management. Unbeknownst to me, that all makes sense in the end and my role at Marick is a mélange of those past experiences.

Education

B.S. in Business Administration, Marketing – Shippensburg University

I have lived or worked in the following cities

Mostly I have worked in PA, but for a few months I lived in NJ at a Ramada Inn. I don’t recommend it.

What was your first job?

My VERY first job was a busboy. Quickly realizing I wanted to do more, I was promoted to cook at age 15.

What industries would you say you know well?

Craft beer? Still trying to figure out how to tie that into the training and development business.

Do you have any musical talents?

I’m a very good listener.

What is your work style?

I would say my work style is organized chaos. Most days move pretty fast, so it’s important to keep close tabs on the big picture; but the minute-to-minute decisions can be a bit chaotic. Being flexible and able to make game-time decisions is important.
