Why did you go into structural engineering?
The son of a general contractor, I grew up building structures on my father’s crews during the summers and weekends. I also loved math and physics and, when it came to applying for college, structural engineering was the logical choice and felt right. It still does.
Little known fact
I met the Dalai Lama in the Himalayas at age 8.
