after experiencing the bumps, bruises, and torn-up shoes, I was able to see what processes in the workflow needed improvement.

PIA: Why do you do what you do? BC: Some people may say that automation takes jobs away, but my reasoning is two-fold. We have the lowest unemployment and the highest use of automation numbers right now. With the advent of technology, we make improvements to the working conditions. A backhoe replaces dozens of people with shovels doing backbreaking work. A backhoe isn’t taking away from the people. It’s doing something more efficiently that people shouldn’t be doing.

PIA: What’s next for you? BC: There is still much work to be done. I see a problem and go after it. Organizations like PIA that recognize the need for innovation are important to the industry. Awards like the Reed Medal and InterTech™ Star add validity and draw focus on the fact that the work of an inventor is never complete.
