Building Services Assistant
Length of time at OCCC: 14 years
What is most enjoyable about your job?
I like working with the people in Facilities Management, end-user customers, and outside vendors. In Facilities, I feel we are lucky, because we always have the right tools or equipment required for the many tasks we have to accomplish.
What have been some of your most interesting projects lately?
Recently, we worked with Community Outreach and Education on the Capitol Hill Parade. This project was outside our normal realm of duties, and it was really fun to be a part of! The 2012 Commencement was very satisfying to work this year, and I also enjoy the opportunities we have to coordinate with other departments on projects. It is truly amazing to watch the College community come together for specific events and work cohesively as one team. I think that part is very rewarding for all involved.
What does the future hold for you?
As anyone, I am looking forward to being able to have a long and wonderful retirement! In the more immediate future, however, I am always looking for things I can do that will simplify my life.
Being a man of few words, I will say that I appreciate being selected as the Facilities Management Featured Employee. I enjoy the "going with the flow" attitude that Facilities takes when tackling large endeavors! We are always successful in getting the job done, no matter what the obstacles, and this is a credit to us as a team!
