1. Why did you want to be an officer of KYSITE?:

I enjoy meeting my fellow colleagues and being involved in a worthwhile organization that focuses on the human aspect of its members.


2. What do you do day-to-day?:

M-F, 8-6 ... I oversee all aspects and operations of the Lexington signal system and traffic management center. After hours and weekends, I own and operate CCS, a fully licensed consulting firm that specializes in data collection for larger engineering firms.  CCS has experience with 4000+ hours of turning movement counts across Kentucky.


3. What are your technical interests?:

People ... everything else will take care of itself in the grand scheme of things.  I love quotes ... so here you go: "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." - Gandhi


4. What are your hobbies?:


A. Living life with my lovely bride and best friend Tabitha

B. Enjoying whatever life dishes out

C. Watching any activities involving my boys (baseball, bowling, video games, or just hanging out with them).


5. Favorites:

Color: Blue ... is there any other color? ... well, Black (for cars)

Movie: Doesn't matter as long as I get to watch it with Tabitha.  We love movies at home ... it's our time ... the Rocky saga ranks near the top.

Music: Sarah McClachlan and any other music that makes you "Feel Alive" ... even opera or rap .. on occasion : )


6. Five Quick Questions:

A. Coke or Pepsi: Coke

B. Dogs or Cats: Dogs Only

C. Telephone or Email: Telephone

D. Pen or Pencil: Pen, your initial though is right anway ... why erase it?

E. Cats or Cards: Who are the Cards?  UK has a Joker ... does that count?


7. Other Information to Share:


A. Just after college, following the birth of Andrew, money was tight.  My engineering job was not providing me the funds necessary to pay all of the bills and diapers / formula were expensive, so I looked at pretty much anything that would make me money.  One day while ' dumpster diving for aluminum cans' near campus, I was knee-deep in a dumpster and a couple of fellow UK grads came by and said "Steve, what are you doing?" I replied, "This does much faster with three people."  The response ... "No, we're good."  I taught myself a valuable lesson that day.  Pride does not put food on the table or diapers on your baby's bottom.  Go the extra mile ... you are worth it!


B. In my spare time, after my full-time with the LFUCG, and following my work with the other firms ... you know, spare time, I clean office buildings at night whenever there are staff call-ins, etc.  My wife and I own Executive Janitorial Services of Kentucky (est. 2007), a commercial cleaning company.  We have contracts with companies ranging from car dealers, engineering companies, painting services, bowling alleys, dental facilities, and maybe your office in the future...give me a call, we'd love to clean your toilets : )


C. One final quote, "The greatest reward for a man's dedication to excellence it not what he gets for it, but what he becomes through it."  God Bless.
