I oversee all operational, financial, human resources, and information technology functions for Westcott. Keeping busy never seems to be a problem.
I love music, especially playing the guitar and performing locally with an acoustic trio named Mile Marker 1. I used to golf a lot, but have found that music is easier on the ego, less expensive, and lets me be home on Sundays.
After 33 years as an advertising photographer, business owner, and forging a 20-year relationship with Westcott, I joined the crew to lead its Product Development Team. Our goal is to develop products that are versatile, innovative, quality-driven, creative, and always designed with the end user in mind. I'm also charged with working with the marketing team to ensure and maintain the integrity of the Westcott brand.
My passion for photography has always been in the forefront, but I have great passion for all art forms, including architecture, sculpture, painting, anime, film, and of course music. Oh, and I am definitely a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Geek! Above all else, I love being with my family.
I am responsible for managing Westcott dealers in Canada and the Eastern U.S. I teach ligting in seminars, attend dealer and national trade shows, and train dealer sales associates to ensure that Westcott products are properly represented to our valued customers.
My family is the most important thing in my life. My son blessed me with my 2 year-old grandson. My two daughters are the apple of my eye and the center of my life. I love to golf although rarely have the time to actually do it. The rest of my life is devoted to keeping my most wonderful wife happy and remembering that I am the luckiest guy in the world when she said yes and became my bride.
I provide customer care with top notch service. I also process orders and assist customers for dealers, all the way up to: Do you want fries with that?
I am a Missouri native so I love the Kansas City Chiefs. I'm also an Ohio State University alumna, so I will always be a Buckeye fan!
My main job is receiving incoming shipments and inventory control. From there I help with inspections, kit building and keeping the warehouse organized.I also guard my inventory like a momma wolf from my co-workers up front!
I grew up on and still live on the family farm so I love anything country and being outside. I also dabble in photography, 3 years ago I spent a day with a pack of wolves doing photos. That was an experience of a lifetime for me.
I pair my creativity and strategic vision to bring Westcott's goals to life. Whether leading the creative team or working as a one-man band, I focus on providing leadership with efficient practices to create a wide range of impactful and effective solutions that connect with our audience.
As a child, collecting paper coasters from around the world inspired me to become a designer. I used to collect baseball cards and now collect fonts. I love to travel with my wife, snorkel, and leap from cliffs into the sea. Our stars aligned in college, unknowing to us that we grew up 5 miles apart.
I create quality marketing material for both print and web. I help create printed flyers, brochures, product instructions, packaging, and tradeshow booth and dealer store signage. I work with the web team to help create web banners and product image optimization for our website.
I enjoy both playing and watching sports. I am currently working on my Bob Vila degree for personal home and lawn improvement. I find it nearly impossible to turn down a good clearence item from Home Depot. I also enjoy being an uncle.
I manage existing and future Westcott products. This includes managing and forecasting for current product inventory, implementing product updates, evaluating new product ideas, gauging potential market impact of new releases, sourcing and manufacturing, etc.
I enjoy spending time with my family. We travel to North Carolina's coastal areas and mountains throughout the year. I coach my kids sports teams, complete my wife's honey do list, and travel. I also enjoy photography, snowboarding, surfing, tennis, golf, watching TV, not reading, attending concerts, sampling micro-brews, and talking about Pearl Jam.
I work with our Top Pros and manage marketing here at Westcott.
I love to fly my drone (even though I usually forget to hit record). I love working alongside the Westcott Top Pro team and meeting new up-and-coming photographers and filmmakers. I've always wanted to be around the best and Westcott has given me the privilege to do that.
I typically wrestle with restive web servers, argue with amnesic databases, and am up to my elbows in pesky code.
I love food (both cooking and eating), watching old b-movies, tinkering with stuff I shouldn't be tinkering with, and spending time with my family (including two dogs who are plotting....something).
I receive product from dealers and customers and conduct repairs or replacements. Then I send the gear back to them.
I'm a musician at heart. I've been involved with music my whole life and have been playing guitar since I was a kid. On the weekends you can catch me at the local establisments playing out.
You can typically find me positing cool photos on social media, scanning through blogs, writing Westcott University articles, editing product descriptions, supporting the art of filmmaking, and bugging someone about Oxford Commas.
On weekends, I'm most likely exploring forests and museums with my mini me. I'm also in love with gardening and hope that my home eventually resembles a rainforest. On weekdays, you can usually find me in my office responding to emails while listening to the Talking Heads and consuming excessive amounts of espresso.
I love traveling around the world meeting with our international dealers! It is rewarding to see how Westcott products are used by these dealers and how they are working with customers in the various countries. Seeing the Westcott brand grow in partnership with our international dealers is truly gratifying!
Outside of work, I've ran a couple of half marathons, just to say that I can do it. When not trying to stay fit, I enjoy going the lake where I spend time with family and friends while swimming, kayaking, or a playing a game of corn hole. It is the simple things that have made me very grateful to be where I am.
I spend the majority of my work day ensuring that Westcott only works with the best possible materials. This is accomplished through purchasing, inspecting and engineering.
I have two miniature potbellied pigs named Wyatt and Dylan. Occasionally, I bring them into the office for a visit.
As the Soundstage Coordinator I organize photo shoots, video shoots and events at our in-house studio. I also assist in trade show planning and travel arrangements.
In my spare time I can be found petting all the dogs, attending a concert or continuing my search for the world’s best hot wings.
I assist Westcott clients with solving lighting challenges and selecting the products that help them capture their artistic vision. I also test and offer advice on potential new product offerings.
I love traveling in our retro 1990 airstream RV, visiting kids scattered across the U.S. and driving my wife mad while learning to play the guitar she bought me.
I assist the various departments with anything they might need, which includes assembling of lighting kits, quality control, shipping and receiving. I am also responsible for fulfilling printed backdrop orders.
I love to fish and hunt (I'm waaay better at fishing). I love cooking, and make a phenomenal steak (it's all about the butter, baby). I like to golf, paintball, and play basketball. I work here with my uncle, the shipping master Terry. I went to Bible college and like to talk about theology.
I work with end users and dealers, repairing and replacing products, and then getting it back to them as soon as possible. The only thing I like more than taking something apart, is remembering how to put it back together.
I spend my time off digging through long boxes in comic shops and pretending to work on screenplays in coffee shops.
I examine and test products for defects or deviations to ensure they meet Westcott's production standards and specifications. I also work closely with suppliers, reporting inspection results and recommending adjustments to the assembly and production process in effort to improve the overall product quality for our customers.
The majority of my time outside of work is spent with my family and playing music. I love playing the guitar for my son and hope that he grows to love music as much as I do.
I am part of the creative team, where I shoot and edit video content at Westcott HQ and on location with Top Pros.
If I'm not working on some type of video project, I'm trying to trick my fiancé into watching a classic sci-fi movie with me, that I know she surely won't enjoy. When I’m not avoiding phone calls from relatives asking for computer help, I often enjoy long walks on beac- okay, who I am I kidding I’d be flying my drone.
