What gives you the most satisfaction in your work?
That "aha!" moment when you find a pattern in the data and connect it to.
Proudest innovation or accomplishment to date (professional or otherwise):
As part of the restoration of the dome of the U.S. Capitol Building, my team had to determine how to construct and support work platforms around the entire exterior of the building. We ended up designing a temporary structure that itself was a dome that was supported on the 1860s cast iron structure.
What is something most people don't know about you?
I'm reasonably ambidextrous.
