This is the most collaborative and fluid environment I’ve ever worked in. DriveTime is always evolving its applications and systems which gives me an opportunity to evolve with it. I like that every day is different and that our leadership has my back and listens to what I have to say. I go home knowing that I’ve accomplished great things and that what I do makes a difference. I get to be part of a huge family that knows how to have a blast and get things done.

When I’m not working I am either in the studio writing and recording music or studying Japanese. Music is where I get to celebrate my love for videogames, languages, and pop culture all at once. Being on stage is exhilarating and it’s fun to connect with people who appreciate my work. I’ve toured around the country and have also recorded television/radio ad spots for McDonalds.
