Early in my life I realized my interests were broad and I needed to pursue a career path that allowed me to explore and integrate multiple disciplines. The notion of an architectural engineer with emphasis in construction management appealed to that calling. I have always been drawn to art and architecture in addition to the pragmatic side of organizing projects and putting it all together. I didn’t realize how much I would to enjoy the relationship building that is so desperately required for this process to work and the inherent challenges and rewards that result. The finished product — a beautiful, functional space created for the benefit of others — motivates me to want to contribute in some way to the design/construct process.
