Little Known Fact:
As coach of the Degenkolb softball team, I led the team to a spot in the A league and participation in the championships two years in a row. Participation in the LEAP Sandcastle Project as Degenkolb’s team leader helps combine my love of the water (Did I mention I am an avid surfer) and desire to give back to the community, especially the engineering community.
Favorite Project Story:
My most memorable moments are those that have demonstrated my growth as a person and a professional. One such instance occurred on a job walk for a very complicated project, where I was able to ‘take the reins’ of an important client meeting and represent our work in a confident, concise, and effective manner that was very well received by the sophisticated audience. My success was not based on any specific preparation, but rather on my growth and confidence as a professional within the normal course of my career. I left that meeting with a great feeling of accomplishment and a strong satisfaction in my career direction.
