Get To Know

When I got interested in architectural engineering:
As a six-year-old looking at floorplans my dad had, only I didn’t know it was called architectural engineering until I got to high school.

Current non-work goal:
Take our three children to visit a new state every year.

When I’m not working, I might be:
Giving a drum lesson to my son, James, who would practice all day if we let him, or coaching daughter Annalise’s soccer team.

What the kids liked best about our first family camping trip:
Burning marshmallows over the campfire and eating them.

At the finish line, my kids ask:
“Daddy, what took you so long?”

What I love about my job:
When our clients succeed, we succeed. It’s a relational business, and helping people is where it’s at.
