What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
Spending time with my family, either participating in outdoor activities, sports, or just being together.
When did you know you wanted to become an engineer?
I grew up always taking things apart to understand how they worked. Through my high school and college years I worked at a boat yard learning and working on internal combustion engines which created a hands-on foundation for me.
