Meet Riyad | Troy Inventory Specialist

What is your past work experience/education? Tell us a little bit about how you ended up in this field and what experiences brought you to the world of design.

I am an Army Medic Veteran with a BBA in Human Resource Management. I have wide skillset with interests in all academic fields. I’ve enjoyed crafts since I was a child with an erector set building bridges with my brother, later taking a course in wood shop, assisting my father installing a wide assortment of in- ground pool equipment, then joining the military as a Healthcare Specialist. When I discharged from my military contract I pursued an education in Human Resources, moving my interests into management. The position of Inventory Specialist suits well with all my skills and combines them into a single focus of management and customer relations.
