What past work history prepared you for Cordillera Ranch?
While I worked for H-E-B eCommerce, I was part of the team that initially started and set up what is now “HEB Home Delivery.” I managed a small team that oversaw deliveries encompassing Central Texas, from San Marcos through Austin/Round Rock/Pflugerville, and the Temple/Killeen/Copperas Cove areas. I also helped create and implement the processes, SOPs and training for the backend and driver support eCommerce teams. The project management of that role, I believe, has prepared me for the job to come here at Cordillera Ranch.
What do you like most about working at Cordillera Ranch?
What I enjoy the most about working at Cordillera Ranch is the people. Everyone that I have interacted with are amazing at what they do and are very welcoming. My favorite part of the job so far is being able to see and experience Cordillera Ranch; the scenery is beautiful, and getting to enjoy that rising sun on my commute to work is something special.
What has been your most rewarding professional experience?
My most rewarding professional experience would have to be starting and setting up the structure for RX (Pharmacy) home delivery in Austin for H-E-B. When the pandemic hit, we had started a pilot program to be able to make home deliveries for medications to those that were unable to leave their homes, and the positive impact that had on them was so fulfilling.
What has been your greatest professional challenge?
My greatest professional challenge would be managing/navigating the chaos that was the pandemic and what that meant for the growth of H-E-B Home Delivery — from having to coordinate the influx of new processes that needed to be created and implemented, to the growth of the delivery volume and what that meant regarding hiring/training drivers and getting the necessary resources to make all of that happen.
What is your secret to happiness?
My secret to happiness is to find the joy in the “little things” — the small things that can put a smile on your face. They add up and eventually lead to bigger things that can bring immense joy in life.
What do you do in your free time?
I am a musician and am currently playing drums for three bands of varying genres. The groups are “Ryley Hall & All Ryled Up” (Top 40/Variety), “Brisbane” (Indie/Funk), and “Corpse Hole” (Metal); songs from all three groups are available on all major platforms. To hear the newest release that I have worked on, please check out “Fields of Gold” by Ryley Hall; I am also featured on the music video for this song, which can be found on YouTube.
What motivates you to succeed?
My friends, loved ones and my passion for music; all those things are what drives me to be successful.
What was your most recent adventure?
I recently had a two-day music event in Dallas that featured “Ryley Hall and All Ryled Up.” It was our first out-of-town gig and it was an amazing experience; we created some awesome memories.
What is your favorite meal?
A love a good crawfish boil. My go-to spots are Smashing Crab and LA Crawfish.
Favorite quote or motto?
“Do today what others won’t so tomorrow you can do what others can’t.”
What is your favorite book or movie and why?
My go to comfort movie is “The Princess Bride.” It was something I loved watching whenever I was younger, and it is something that I still enjoy to this day.
