WHAT’S THE BEST PART OF WORKING AT AIRROSTI?
The best part of working at Airrosti is being able to be involved in a company that not only fosters a great culture and work environment, but also makes a real, lasting difference in people’s lives. Every day I get testimonials from patients that had given up hope in their search for relief from pain they were living with. We fix most of them and knowing that I played a part, however small, in making that happen is a pretty cool thing.
WHAT ARE YOUR PASSIONS OUTSIDE OF WORK?
As a husband and father of four boys, anyone with kids will know that I don’t have a whole lot of time for lots of personal passions outside of work. But that’s ok because my family is my biggest passion. I have been blessed with a really cool and supportive wife and four great kids. We always seem to have some fun family activity that we are gearing up for, doing or recovering from. Beyond that, I’m pretty passionate about CrossFit. I haven’t found anything else better for keeping me healthy so I can be around as long as possible for my kids.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU’D LIKE TO DO BUT HAVEN’T?
I would like to take a stock car around a track at 200+ MPH at some point. I’m not a huge fan of NASCAR or anything, just think it would be a rush to drive that fast. I would also like to take my family to Australia someday as well as go on an African safari.
