What is your proudest innovation to-date?
I worked on the Kansas City Streetcar project for six years. Seeing that project come to life and ridership exceed all expectations was a phenomenal experience.
If you had to choose a different career, what would it be?
I would write children's books with nerdy and empowering themes using Dr. Seuss-esque rhyming schemes and illustrate them using MS Paint.
What is something most people don't know about you?
I can play the piano upside down.
