What has been your favorite project to work on during your career?

My favorite project I have worked on was the TCU Campus Commons project. It was unique in the fact that we were working with three different architects and two general contractors on 5 new buildings in the middle of campus. I learned a lot about how to be a good consultant during this project.

What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any interesting hobbies?

I love to cook! You will find me cooking almost every day of the week, everything from smoking different types of meats, preparing different Asian dishes, to authentic Mexican food from my time in New Mexico.

What is the most daring thing you've ever done?

Most recently was zip-lining several hundred feet in the air above the rainforest in the Dominican Republic.
