I grew up in Edmonton, Alberta.

My education: Electrical Engineering Technologist, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Awards: IES Lighting Award, Microsoft Office

Why Flow? It’s a great size and provides many opportunities for development.

What put me on the path to engineering: Working in construction as an electrician led to a path in engineering.

Something that surprised me about working at an engineering firm: The level of expertise required!

Something people might not know about what mechanical or electrical engineers do: We’re not installers—we create blueprints for contractors.

Projects I’m proud of: Vancouver Convention Centre, Microsoft Office, Bayview Seniors Residence, White Rock Towers

A favourite moment in engineering: Seeing AutoCAD Revit for the first time.

My dream project is a luxury, 60-storey iconic tower in Vancouver

I’m influenced by hard work.

I’m concerned about the environment.

When I’m not working you can find me renovating or designing cottages.

On my playlist right now: Pocket Full of Sunshine (Natasha Bedingfield)

Transportation of choice: Mountain bike

Coffee or tea: Tea

Quote that guides me right now: “I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness.”
