On a personal note

I am thrilled to have found a home in WSC with a wonderful team of passionate and purposeful problem-solvers. Like all engineers, I love to understand how things work. The practice of systems thinking, striving for continual improvement, and commitment to finding the right-sized solution with an emphasis on quality communication defines my approach to project delivery.

I enjoy being active outside all seasons of the year by biking to work, playing an excessive amount of soccer, skiing, hiking and camping.
