Q: During your career, you’ve worked on dozens of projects. What is your favorite part of the design process?

A: My favorite part is the initial planning stages. It is during this part that most of the important decisions that affect the entire course of the project are made. I enjoy it the most because of the interaction among the engineers, owner, and architect.

Q: If you could give one piece of advice to a young professional just entering the engineering field, what would it be?

A: Go into finance! J But, if you want to stay in engineering, I would advise getting a hard bound notebook and keeping lots of notes. Memories are short.
