Why did you go into structural engineering?
Buildings are in the Nelson blood. My Dad has enjoyed a very successful career as a Civil Engineer and my Grandfather the same as a homebuilder and professional carpenter. Seeing both of them finding enjoyment in their careers while also making a daily impact on cities and communities sealed the deal for me.
Little Known Fact
I own and play a Keytar.
Question of the Day
What hobby would you go into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I absolutely love to travel abroad and I also love to write about those travels, but neither happen nearly as much as I would like. If “overseas self-publishing amateur travel writer” could be considered a hobby, that would be my answer.
