Why did you go into structural engineering?
As a young child and teenager I was always interested in building things and enjoyed the fact that you could see and touch structural engineering. In my early childhood I worked with my father and brother to build a little cabin in Northern Wisconsin. I guess that experience always stuck with me and created a desire to build bigger buildings. I now spend more of my time on business issues than actually designing and building buildings but in my personal life I am still very hands on and enjoy doing my own small scale construction projects.
Little Known Fact
Just like any other good cheese head (I hail from Green Bay), I am a die-hard Packers fan.
Question of the Day
What’s your favorite way to get to work?
By airplane of course. Alaska airlines appreciates my business. My primary residence and family are in Seattle but I travel extensively to all of the Degenkolb offices.
