What inspired you to choose your current career path?
During the 1996 Olympics my godparents’ son was staying with us in Atlanta. He had just finished school in Civil Engineering and was building a casino in Las Vegas. I began talking to him about what I wanted to do and what field I should go into. Ultimately, I became an engineer.
If you weren't an engineer, what would you be?
I would have been a brewmaster. The chemistry process is fascinating and the fact that there is a lot of trial and error is fun.
