What are some of your favorite types of projects to work on?
Anything that requires out of the box critical thinking and problem solving. I love challenging myself and coming up with solutions to problems. Drainage projects are my favorite because they are so unique. Every drainage project has different types of challenges that make them a lot of fun…for an engineer!

A particular hobby, interest or skill I have is that I’m a tinkerer. I have a never ending list of house projects that I enjoy working on to keep me busy.
