What Inspires You?

“I am inspired by the people that surround me.  The AEC industry is filled with very bright people who look to change the world through our complex building environment and deeply influence the lives of the people that utilize the structures we design and build.  In the Institutional sector, the built environment directly affects the people that utilize the structures and can even influence their lives and general health.  This has always driven my passion to make a difference and to help people. I am also driven by the teams that I work with and enjoy helping to influence the careers of young people in the industry.

Stories intrigue me and I am fascinated by the stories of peoples lives and life experiences – take the time to ask someone about their journey, you will hear some captivating things!”
