Q: What do you like about your industry?
A: The permanency. I feel that the greatest reward is to see a finished project and know that I had a hand in it.
Q: Which phase of a project is your favorite?
A: Structural steel. I love to see the skeleton take shape and envision the remaining design resting on it.
