- Favorite project you've worked on?

- Favorite Travel spot?
- any location where I can spend time in the water and SCUBA dive
- Secret Talents?
- A talent that most people do not know I have is creating corporate websites. This was a business venture that I had in high school, with my best friend, and most sites still exist today.
- What is the most interesting task you have been asked to do on the job?

- What inspired you to choose engineering/construction?
- What inspired me to choose engineering as my field of study during college was my interest in building things from a young age, whether that be in the sand at the beach, or with LEGOS. What inspired me to choose construction as my profession after college was working for design engineers who could follow what the design standards read in the book, but did not know how their designs were actually built in the field. When they would receive constructability problems during design and/or construction, they would not have a response. The final "push" for construction, prior to graduation, was my attendance at
- How did you get involved in the Construction Institute?
- My first introduction was attending
in 2010 in Keystone, CO. After attending, and leading the team that won the challenge, I was asked to join the planning committee for
in 2011. This led me to chair the
committee for a number of years, and then join the the YPC executive board and serve as its chair.
