People would be surprised if they knew: I have a beautiful Golden Lab (half Golden Retriever and half Yellow Lab) that can’t catch a ball to save his life and hates the water.
What one accomplishment (professional or personal) are you most proud of? Personally, I’m most proud of my children and their accomplishments as they grow. Professionally, I’m most proud of being the Civil Engineer of Record and being a part of the Kyle Field redevelopment project.
What made you want to become an engineer? I was working in the labor union with my uncle as a general laborer the summer after graduating from high school. It was hot and miserable, to say the least. I kept seeing these people coming in and out of the construction trailer with clean white shirts on and asked someone who they were. I was told they were engineers. It was then that I knew what I wanted to do!
