What Core Value resonates with you the most?
Honesty, Integrity, and Responsiveness. Remaining honest with clients, team members, friends, and family has always been one of my core values. In addition, BEC strives to be responsive both internally and externally.
What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any interesting hobbies?
I like to golf, fish, exercise, travel, and just generally be active.
Why did you choose this career?
I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve clients and solve problems in a cost-effective manner. This would not have been possible without a great team.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
Good question, I really do not have a favorite place. I was fortunate enough to travel the world while working on large-scale refinery, power plant, bridge, and civil projects prior to opening BEC Engineers.
