What do you enjoy about the work you do and what is most rewarding?
The most enjoyable part of work for me is collaborating with my teammates to produce something useful. It takes many long hours to do what we do and it is important to me to help my team succeed. I enjoy the morning huddles where we list out our vexing problems and make attack plans. I am always learning new things because there is so much to know in our discipline! There is never enough time! ASIC North is a very honest, trustworthy, ethical, effective organization. I really enjoy working here because my team always supports me and cares.
What is one of your greatest career accomplishments?
My greatest career accomplishment is At Speed Structural Test (ASST). The team I was working with was “stuck in a rut” using race-free LSSD testing in manufacturing and our major customer was having chip quality issues because the 400Mhz functional logic was not being tested with functional clocks at-speed. It is rewarding to see that ASST is now used pervasively in the industry for advanced process geometry products.
What do you do for fun outside work?
I like to do all sports, but I have had to moderate what I do because I have aged. Currently I am golfing, skiing, biking, hiking and boating. My greatest joy is my family and friends. I have two wonderful daughters in their 20’s who are building their careers and lives. I have a wonderful partner. We are currently learning to navigate the new COVID-19 world-order together.
