WHAT IS THE ONE AREA YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?
“I enjoy going past structures I have designed over the years and seeing the impact on the community. From arenas, to schools, to strip malls, to houses, it is really cool to drive by seeing the design become reality and thinking, “I designed that”. Also, it’s fun seeing both of my kids attend school in buildings I have designed.”
IF YOU COULD SHARE ONE TIP WITH NEW ENGINEERS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
“Do your research and ask questions. Often, I tell young engineers who work with me is that one of my goals is to share all of the knowledge I have accumulated over my 20 plus years in my head into theirs. By far the best way to do that is for young engineers to ask situational questions and tap into that experience.”
