We caught up with Dylan to learn a little more about what makes him tick:
1. How did you get your start with MPS, and how long have you been with the company?
I started here in January 2019, I responded to an Indeed job recommendation. After looking over my resume and doing a couple interviews I was given the job as assistant lighting repair technician.
2. When you’re not at MPS, where can we find you? i.e. How do you recharge?
I like mountain biking, I also have various electrical projects at home including an all electric bicycle. I tinker with electronics, engines, and computers.
3. What’s your favorite piece of equipment to work with?
I think my favorite piece of equipment is the Hakko 472D Desoldering Station. It’s effect on how I do repairs and how long it takes to do repairs is priceless. A repair that would have taken an hour with other desoldering methods now takes 15-20 minutes.
4. If we were to hop onto your music playlist, what would we see you were listening to most recently?
I listen to many different genres and artists. My all time favorite musician is Elliott Smith, specifically his hit album “Either/Or”
