Maziyar Bolour, PEng / Manager / Diagnostics, Toronto

In Six: Don't find fault; find a remedy.
Roots / Alma Mater: Thornhill, Ontario, Canada / Azad University
Role model: His grandfather, who was also a world wrestling champion and an actor.
2nd career choice, if not an engineer: “I would have most likely become a dentist (if there were absolutely no other options). I enjoy working with tools and equipment — especially the high-tech ones.”
Forte: Moore about Maziyar…

Michael Brown, PhD, PE / Project Manager / Diagnostics, Austin

In Six: Introverted, Philomath, Questioner, Sarcastic, Survivor, Tall.
Roots / Alma Mater: Fort Worth, Texas / University of Texas (Austin)
Best advice you’ve received so far: There are two terms that should be avoided when describing one's work: good enough and perfect. If the goal is "good enough," the results reflect that. If the goal is "perfect," there will never be any results.
Proudest accomplishment to date: “I have beaten cancer…twice.”
Forte: Moore about Michael…

In Six: Always leave yourself with some outs.
Roots / Alma Mater(s): East Lansing, Michigan / University of Michigan, University of Texas, University of Washington
2nd career choice, if not an engineer and attorney: I would be an historian, preferably studying and writing about the American Civil War.
Best advice you’ve received so far: “In practicing law, there are a handful of sayings or maxims to which I frequently return: e.g., ‘you can't beat something with nothing,’ and ‘we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.’”
