Road to Flavorchem
I started working for Flavorchem the last week of March 2019. A recruiter called me at an opportune time and mentioned a flavor and fragrance manufacturer in Downers Grove. Immediately I knew she was talking about Flavorchem because they were one of my first customers when I started in the chemical and ingredient space 6 years ago. I was a big fan of Flavorchem already and really liked their company and the culture. I knew right away it was the perfect fit for me.
Interest in the Food & Beverage Industry
I’d say it’s more the scientific and human nutrition aspect of the food and beverage industry that interests me the most. If you think about it, the common phrase “you are what you eat” is 100% accurate. Literally every cell in your body was created from food and beverages we consume. I’ve been fascinated in human nutrition for as long as I can remember and really enjoy working with companies that create “better for you” products.
Home projects and repairs continue to keep me busy. My wife runs a pretty tight ship, is active on Pinterest and watches a lot of HGTV. This gives her (and I!) an endless supply of ideas on what to do next to the house. Currently we’re doing a small renovation on our bar area to give it a “Speak-Easy” type feel. We’re back in the 20’s, right?!
