Why did you choose this career?

What initially steered my interest to becoming an engineer was my passion for math. I later decided to become a civil engineer because it is the oldest branch of engineering which proved to me the importance and impact our designs have in the world, and I also find it as a rewarding career.

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

The Parkerville Elevated Storage Tank Overflow project. I enjoyed working on this project because it was different and required creative thinking.

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

In my spare time I like to listen to podcasts, travel, and camp with friends and family.
