A CONVERSATION WITH...
Continued from page 43

design projects, integration projects,
services and consulting. We have
significant capabilities at the AARC and
enjoy working with our clients to help
shape and provide solutions to complex
industry problems.

What's the favorite
part of your job?

Aside from interacting with
great folks, I enjoy developing new
applications for UAS that may not have
been established in the past, those
that require a unique solution. To craft
these solutions, we have to envision
new processes and protocols or adapt
existing processes and protocols to
generate some level of detail toward
the solution. The majority of these
projects incorporate unique problem
areas that are ripe for exploration.
As a research scientist, this is truly
remarkable and exciting.

When you're not involved
in research at work,
what are you doing?

I enjoy spending time with my family.
I am happily married to my wife, Krista,
and we have two children. Victoria,
our daughter, is 10, and Costa, our son,
is 5. Both are stellar students and are
involved in extracurricular activities.
Victoria truly enjoys science and
experiments and Costa does, as well. He
loves to help. Additionally, both Victoria
and Costa have a keen interest on how
things work and love to help me with
mechanical tasks. It is truly fascinating
to watch. They love getting into my tool
box, just as I did with my father's. My
wife and I encourage them to try new
things, and I often show them how the
tools that they have selected work. I
want them both to have the utility. It is
a life skill and exceptionally important.
Last, Krista is very supportive of my

career, and I truly owe her a debt of
thanks. It takes a team to accomplish
the everyday activities, and she truly
helps take care of the day-to-day. Her
support is wonderful.

How was the move from
Daytona Beach to Salina?
We have been in Salina for about
four months. It has definitely been a
transition moving from Daytona Beach;
however, we've adjusted fairly well.
K-State Polytechnic and the folks here in
the community are very welcoming, and
that always makes any transition easier.

Do you have any hobbies?
I truly enjoy gardening. Gardening
helps me take a step back and relax.
I have been interested in horticulture
since my teenage years, and the hobby
has just evolved since then. I can truly
say that I have a green thumb. I also
enjoy billiards and pool. I enjoy the
game because it requires precision,
accuracy, planning and skill. It is a
challenging game, and I believe this
is what drew me to the table in the
first place. As a family, we enjoy the
outdoors. We enjoy bike rides, traveling,
hiking and experiencing new places.

What do you see
for the future?

I try not to think too far ahead. I try
to stay grounded and in the present,
but it's hard not to forecast when you
are involved in the UAS industry. I see
exponential growth around me. The
UAS industry is growing at a rapid
rate, and Kansas State University's
Polytechnic Campus is at the forefront
of this evolutionary growth. The UAS
industry is highly stimulated, and it's
on its way. I am excited about what the
future holds. q
