Vice President - Engineering & Professional Services.
I began my career 20 years ago as a construction splicer. I couldn’t have predicted how working for great companies would expose me to such a broad spectrum of challenges that included designing complex projects, managing new build programs, navigating regulatory proceedings, and international operations.
Along the way, I consistently found success implementing creative solutions to these challenges. These solutions often involved using technology and analytics to improve processes, and they always involved investing in people to provide better tools, clearer direction, and meaningful feedback.
The background picture above is a picture I took of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain while visiting Lijiang in 2005. It's also where I was first learned of Lao Tzu. While I don't pretend to be an expert in his philosophy, this quote captures the greatest struggles and achievements of my career: “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”
