Born and raised in Detroit, I have worked my way through a number of positions within the Shinola team.

My Story

I began with the building’s janitorial staff when the watch factory first opened and not long after wanted to try my hand at movement assembly. I interview for an open position, passed the dexterity test and was hired immediately. I then moved to the full watch assembly side and trained in additional positions. 

In early 2014, I was selected as a team lead to oversee the pre-production staff, which includes making sure all components have been inspected and prepared before they are sent to the watch factory. I also oversee the strapping operation, the final step of the watchmaking process, as well as the final quality control team. 

My favorite parts of the job are the people I get to work with and the pride I take in making sure all of my orders are correct and get out on schedule.
