Principal | Anchorage Electrical Department Head
As an Electrical Engineer, I most appreciate the lighting aspects of my projects – it is one of the more individualized aspects of what I do. Lighting changes have a great impact on the character of a project.
I am currently working on several military and Corps of Engineers projects located in interior Alaska. I enjoy working with knowledgeable clients that have a broad background. I am also working on replacing some existing facilities in Antarctica, which is exciting work due to the locality and the knowledge of the client. I am motivated to create the best projects I can for all my clients. It is important to get things right and meet or exceed project and client expectations.
I consider a project successful when we have a satisfied client and a satisfied end-user. Especially when a client returns to us for later revisions to a facility. I see that as recognition of our abilities, and that the knowledge of the project is a benefit to our client.
My favorite project was in South Pole. The design was challenging and interesting, but it is a favorite primarily due to the locality and the importance of the facility to further research. It is a close, small community to interact with which made the project very special to the community and the project team. I also enjoy working on design-build (D/B) proposals. Working closely with contractors to define the product is interesting and fun.
