I think Lean should be used everywhere when possible, especially in the home.
I love biotech and have a BS from Michigan State University. I've worked in biotech for most of my life. (LinkedIn profile if you're curious)
My 100th blog post is: 25 + Things Your Probably Didn't Know About Me . It's my tell all about what makes me tick. Below I've listed 5 of them, enjoy.
1. I was a self-proclaimed bachelor until my nephew Benjamin was born…he was so cute that it melted my heart and changed my mind. (Everyone else always knew I was going to get married and be a dad, I didn’t get the memo)
9. I don't call my friends often enough and tell them how much they mean to me. I just hope they know. I do lurk around their FB profiles and sometimes I convince myself that I've spoken with them recently. I would consider myself a stalker except that I've been to all their weddings...and yes I was invited.
21. The greatest honor ever bestowed upon me was by the staff at Asterand. I had been working many hours on a huge project and in appreciation for this, one of the workers suggested collecting money to send my wife K. and I out to a nice dinner. They collected so much money it turned into 2 round trip tickets + hotel to Chicago for the weekend with tickets to see the Blue Man Group. My wife helped schedule everything behind my back. She’s sneakier than I thought…See Fact 7 and Fact 10 for why I love her.
22. I’m a hugger…get used to it or stay out of my circle *smile*
24. In one of my job performance reviews the manager realized that he had to say at least one thing that I needed to improve so he picked “terrible handwriting”. This made me realize how important performance reviews are in helping people better themselves. See fact 5. It also made me work on my penmanship.
I've lived in Detroit, MI, Los Angeles, CA, Gaithersburg, MD and Seattle, WA, Farmington Hills, MI and Germantown, TN.
Most importantly I'm a husband to a wonderful wife K. and a proud father of 3 fantastic kids ages 8 to 2.
Now go back and read the blog if want to learn more about my passions, humor and what makes Lean great.
