"When it comes to my career, I never saw myself doing anything different. As a child, I played in the dirt; and now I get paid to do so, making it the best of both worlds. This industry has taught me a lot of valuable lessons and to be very flexible as conditions are ever changing. Through my experiences, I am able to solve unique and challenging problems, often times with innovative and value engineering approaches."
