Congratulations on taking the contest-winning photo spotlighted for the month of February in the Ultradent calendar and Facebook cover photo series!
What is your name?
What do you do here at Ultradent?
I’m a Supplier Quality Engineer.
What kinds of things do you do in your job?
I interface with our suppliers on quality issues.
Were you born and raised in Utah?
No, I was born in Washington but came to Utah to attend Brigham Young University (BYU), where I earned a bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering and a master’s degree in engineering.
Tell me about how you ended up working at Ultradent.
One Saturday I was out cycling and I happened upon another cyclist. After we started chatting, I found out he worked at Ultradent. In fact, he worked in the same field as me as a quality manager. Later on, I found out my neighbor also worked for Ultradent, and he raved about the company and culture and encouraged me to apply for a job here. Ironically enough, when I came in to interview, I was interviewed by the cyclist who had told me about the company in the first place!
What has your experience working with Dr. Fischer been like?
I love how friendly and how incredibly involved he is, especially given all that he has on his plate. He’s been a great CEO.
What do you like about working at Ultradent?
Everything I had heard about our wonderful culture is true. It’s so family-friendly and so welcoming. I just love it.

Tell me about your family.
I have a 24-year-old son, an 18-year-old son, a 12-year-old daughter, and a wife. They’re a lot of fun. My wife snowshoes with me once in a while and my daughter loves to go with me when she can. She loves the outdoors.
How did you get this gorgeous shot for our February cover photo?
I took this photo when I was up American Fork Canyon in the Uinta National Forest. I go snowshoeing just about every Saturday, and on that particular day I got stuck on the trail because there were two moose in front of me that wouldn’t let me pass! After I waited for what seemed like forever, something scared them off and I came upon the meadow that is shown in the photograph. I got out my camera and took this picture. It was probably taken at around 7 a.m.

How does living in Utah influence your hobbies?
We have the most beautiful outdoors. I love to hike, snowshoe, and cycle. I try to take advantage of the outdoors here in Utah in both the winter and the summer because each season has so much to offer.
