How long have you worked for Easton Utilities?
A little over 10 years.
Describe your job history at EU.
I first started at EUC in 2011 as a Control Room Assistant in the power plant. After several years learning about the intricacies of the power plant, I got the opportunity to move up to a Control Room Operator.
What is your favorite part of your job and working for EU?
My favorite part about working at EU would be the sense of community. Everyone here will go above and beyond to help each other when in need.
During your service with EU, is there one key moment that stands out as significant or unique?
I wouldn’t say that any one moment has stood out, but what comes to mind are outages. During every outage, regardless of department, you will see everyone come together and step up to restore services. It's impressive to see how hard working, selfless and professional everyone is during the toughest events.
What EU tradition is your favorite and why?
One of my favorite EU traditions is our yearly Tree Planting. Every year the whole company gets together and plants trees in locations that directly benefit the community. It’s a great opportunity for us to work with people in different departments and help the environment.
How do you feel EU positively impacts the community?
I think EU positively impacts the community every day in the least obvious of times. We give the community access and local control over their necessary utilities. We provide each service with high reliability and quality while being very cost effective.
Describe your life outside of work.
Most of my time outside of work consists of spending time with my family. I enjoy watching my children play ball and going camping.
Describe the members of your family and any pets.
My wife, Julia, and I have 3 children, each 4 years apart. My daughter is the oldest and is growing up faster than I could ever imagine. My son is excited to start Kindergarten this coming year and could probably teach a class on dinosaurs. My youngest was born in 2020 during the height of the pandemic. It has been exciting, to say the least, having a house full of children and watching them interact as they grow. We deeply miss our two boxers that played a large role in our house until the second one passed earlier this year.
What plans do you have for the future?
In the future, I hope to continue to grow with EU. I hope to continue increasing my knowledge and ability to better serve EU and the local community.
Anything else interesting you’d like to share?
I would like to thank anyone who took the time to read a little about myself and EU.
