Engineering Technician and Aviation Enthusiast

Do you have a hobby? Tell us about it.
I love most everything outdoors, but over the last few years I have adopted traditional archery shooting. I was an avid archer growing up, but traditional archery is unique, using either a long bow or recurve without any rests, sights, stabilizers, or releases. It is instinctual shooting and is all about consistency and patience.

What is your chosen discipline (engineering, planning, surveying, etc.)? Why do you love it?

Everything Airports. Having been in Airport Operations for many years, I have a unique insight into the process of developing and completing airport work. On top of that, I have seen challenges and successes in taking ownership of a completed project and being the one that lives with it.

Airport work is fascinating in that it is fast paced, and low tolerance. There is a lot of attention to detail and constant re-prioritization that makes the airport industry a fun and challenging career field.

What’s your superpower?
Adaptability. I tend to have the ability to meld with a situation and make the best of the current circumstances. It is a blessing and a curse, but generally is a good superpower to have.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Antarctica. I have always been interested in visiting the ends of the earth. Polar exploration and the vast wasteland of Antarctica is the true end of the earth.

If you could snap your fingers and become an expert in something, what would it be?
Fishing! Because let’s be real, there are no true fishing experts.

If you could write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
We’ll Get There Eventually!
In my life, I have lived in some amazing places and have lived many incredible experiences. I have taken the long road, to be sure, but all of these experiences have contributed to who and where I am now. Although it has taken many years to get here, I wouldn’t trade those experiences and relationships for anything.

What is one thing you’re learning now, and why is it important?
Country Swing Dancing. My wife has been dancing for years, and I am slowly trying to catch up! Country swing dancing is something fun that we share together, and it keeps us active and healthy.
