Hi, my name is Justin. I’m the new Project Manager at Mt Baker Vapor! I began this path as an avid gamer. I wanted to start creating games so I took that on as my focus for University studies. I learned rather quickly that I didn’t quite have the right mind to get as good at programming as I would need to be. I continued on anyway and added an International Business Administration major to my course track as well. This opened up the path of Project Management to me and I found that I really liked it. I lead my capstone team for our final game project and we did rather well.
I spent my junior year studying abroad in France and Sweden as part of the IBA studies. There I met my lovely wife and we both completed our final year at DePaul University in Chicago. We both began applying for positions all over the country and she found something solid enough to move on here in Phoenix.
Coincidentally my parents had been planning to move here for years anyway so it’s really nice to still be near them. We are all huge fans of the out-doors and travel north a couple time each month to take in the scenery. Our favorite walks around here (when it’s cool enough) are the trails around South Mountain. The changing scale of the landscape is breathtaking.
I’ve been interested in working in the vaping industry since I began to vape around 2 years ago. It’s been a fast growing industry with unique challenges. I have friends who smoke and I’d like to do anything I can to get them into vaping. When the opportunity came up to work with a leader in the category, I couldn’t say no.
I’m very happy to be here at MBV and I hope that they will be able to utilize my skills here to make your experience with our products even better!
