Where are you from and what first brought you to San Diego?
I was born and raised in beautiful Stockton, California. I moved to San Diego for an undergraduate engineering degree at San Diego State University and have been in San Diego ever since.
Where do you work?
I am a design engineer at Harris & Associates where I work mostly on water and water related projects. Typical projects I work on include design of open channels, potable water and sanitary sewer replacements, and emergency storm drain repair projects. My favorite part of the job is developing solutions to much-needed problems like reducing flood risks to homes and repairing failed infrastructure. These projects have shown the importance of the work we do. It also helps that our office is across the street from Donut Bar!
What led you to be involved in YMF?
I joined YMF to meet and network with more engineers and to learn about the cool projects everyone is working on.
What are your favorite YMF events?
I've really enjoyed all the general board meetings where I've met a lot of friendly people and got to learn about the projects going around throughout San Diego.
What is one thing you’ve learned from your participation with YMF?
Instead of running home after a long day at work and jumping on the couch, YMF members would rather attend meetings and events, which shows me YMF members care a lot about developing themselves as a better engineer and knowing what it takes to pursue their goals.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
I used to be able to run a mile under 5 minutes!
