Get To Know

My dog:
A super-smart border collie-blue heeler cross, Mikko, who knows how to smile, sleeps at my feet while I work, and loves long hikes.

My superpower:
There’s not a dog on the planet that doesn’t like me.

If I’m not working or hiking, I might be:
Playing inline hockey with a semi-pro team, the Lakewood Fire, or cheering on the Colorado Avalanche at Ball Arena.

One reason I’m not a biomedical engineer:
I fainted during a movie about laser eye surgery during an intro to engineering survey class.

Why my job is like umping a baseball game:
If I do it right, no one has to ask questions or even know I was there.

Childhood aspiration:
From sixth grade, I knew I wanted to be an engineer. I’ve always loved fixing things. Engineering gives you cool tools for doing that.

Something good about Reese Hackman:
The wide variety of projects and clients. One week I’m designing a chapel and the next it’s a rec center, but it’s always about overcoming challenges to create the right environment for the client.
