What has been your favorite project to work on during your career?
I think my favorite Dunaway project to work on was the Walsh Ranch Parkway project because it was my very first project I worked on when I came to Dunaway.
What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any interesting hobbies?
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family. I also like to play the piano when I get home from work as it’s a good way to de-stress after a long commute. My hobbies include collecting Movie Serial items, religious books, and model railroading. I also like to play croquet and disk golf.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
I love traveling across the country and seeing new places, especially the National Parks. Yosemite is, however, my favorite place in the world is home.
What makes you laugh the most?
Probably watching any Three Stooges comedy, Abbott and Costello movie, or Laurel and Hardy episode.
What is the most daring thing you've ever done?
One year as a counselor at Texoma Youth Camp, they were having a bonfire, and it got out of control. The fire was heading straight toward a full gasoline tank. I probably should have run away, but my buddy and I ran with brooms towards the gas tank to put out the fire before it reached the gas tank.
