What is your favorite project that you have worked on in your career?  Washington Indiana Constructed Wetlands for CSO Treatment.  I only filled in for a couple weeks on the inspection but it was a very important project for the town and ended up receiving several awards including the 2013 ACEC National Engineering Excellence Honor Award.  The project utilized a 5 Million gallon storage tank to receive the wastewater before being treated at the plant and any overflow from the tank flowed thru two 84 inch pipes before entering a 27 acre constructed wetland for treatment.

Who has been most influential in your career? I would say my family.  At a young age I was taught the value or hard work and sticking with whatever it is you’re doing until it is complete.

What is your favorite place to visit on vacation?  A tossup between Charleston SC and Savannah GA.

Do you have any hobbies? Small scale farming
