Development Department – Overland Park, Kansas
At Walsworth, I am an Application Developer. I move data between different databases. My job changes dynamically from day to day as the school year progresses, and I ensure errors do not occur with data migration.
I did not work in the printing industry prior to coming to Walsworth. A talent recruiter brought me to Walsworth, and I’ve worked here for over three-and-a-half years.
What I love most about my job is working with the personnel and the activities and events we have in the office.
If I had a personalized coffee mug at work, it would say “Life Happens, Coffee Helps”
My favorite memories at Walsworth are the Easter egg hunts. I enjoy the family involvement of Walsworth events.
A fun fact about me is I recently visited Mammoth Lakes, Sequoia National Park and Yosemite in California this summer.
I have been married to my beautiful wife for 13 plus years. I am a dog dad to a German Shepherd named Coco, and I am an uncle and a great uncle to numerous nieces and nephews.
Outside of work, I enjoy disc golfing with my brothers, traveling with my wife and hiking the outdoors. I also try to give back to my community by fostering children through KVC (Knowledge, Values and Connections) at Christmas and I have sponsored less fortunate children internationally.
