I think my becoming an engineer was inevitable. As a kid I would build miniature cities with shoe boxes, empty cereal boxes, and anything else I could find; then build highways for marbles out of paper towel rolls. I found more inspiration my junior year in high school in geometry. I had a great teacher that made math “click” for me in a fun and analytical way.
Throughout my career at PDC, I’ve found the community projects I work on have been the most rewarding. When my family and I visit the museum or the movie theater, my kids are proud that their daddy helped “build” our community. The best was working on my kid’s school; I love how they think it’s cool that I helped design it. I feel a sense of engagement and ownership in our town, and I like knowing what I do makes my community a better place.
I want to see my clients succeed. I enjoy taking my clients visions and ideas and turning them into reality.
