Get To Know

I know a secret:
There are tunnels under the high school auditorium in my hometown of Johnstown, part of a bomb shelter constructed because the steel-making city was considered a top Cold War-era target.

My rock’n’roll vacation:
Visited London, England, for a tribute concert in honor of what would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday, with a stop in Liverpool for a personal all-day guided Beatles tour.

Life goal:
Finish writing and recording 20 years of incomplete songs.

The title of my future album:
“Lion,” with a cover featuring a Polaroid photo of me, age 3, dressed as the Cowardly Lion for Halloween.

My astrological sign:

Hope for the future:
A sociopolitical pendulum swing that enables us as engineers to concentrate on environmental sustainability efforts.

Work wins:
Innovative, energy-saving climate control systems at two Penn State facilities, the Intramural Building and Hort Woods Child Care Center, and at the Discovery Meadows child development center in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
