Troy began working at Far West Recycling in the fall of 1985 through a student work program at Beaverton High School. Since then he has held many positions at FWR from sorting materials to equipment operator as well as supervisory roles. While working as a supervisor, his interest in safety and health continued to grow. In 2001 Troy became a full time Safety and Health Coordinator. His success as Quality, Environmental, Health, and Safety Coordinator has lead him to take on other responsibilities including managing R2/RIOS certifications, Stormwater Pollution Control Plans, and Department of Transportation requirements.
Troy currently lives in Tigard with his wife Jenny where they have raised three children, daughters Joelle and Hannah, and son Nathan. His interests are music, sports and RV camping.
