What inspired you to choose this career path? I liked art and (at the time) math. Architecture seemed like the right combination. But then I had to take safety classes and understand construction methods. Through those classes I found myself looking to understand more about buildings. I wanted to be a part of ground up construction.. to coordinate the progress, understanding the schedule and trades involved.
Can you share a memorable moment or project that has significantly shaped your professional journey? My most memorable project so far is the Fisher Cats Stadium Renovation. There were 5 or 6 different work zones, multiple schedules running cohesively, close public apartments, and multiple parties involved in approvals. Like all projects, we hit a few snags, but it never deterred the project team from our end goal. Plus I was able to add some words to my vocabulary, including ‘bullpen’ and ‘strike zone’.
Outside of work, what are some of your hobbies or passions? At the end of everyday, I look forward to spending time with my dog. Whether it’s taking him for a walk, hyping him up for zoomies, or sitting next to him while we binge our next fav show. I’m also a big fan of hiking and enjoying nature. There’s nothing more calming than breathing in the fresh air after rainfall (which is needed in this line of work lol).
