Why did you choose Walter P Moore?
I chose Walter P Moore because of the training, the people, and the projects. I felt and still feel that we have the best combination of all three.
If you weren't an engineer, what would you be?
I loved rocks growing up so maybe a geologist.
What inspired you to choose your current career path?
My father and his family are originally from Cuba where my grandfather was an architect. My grandfather had a huge passion for buildings and taught me a great appreciation for them at an early age.
