“I'm excited to work for DRMP because the firm is all about presenting new ways to make our clients' projects successful.”
What inspired you to choose your career path?
It started out as a summer job after high school and it has been a long summer. As a teenager, what kept me in surveying was the excitement of being outside and going new places. I liked learning a lot about land history, science and math. It kept me entertained in the field at a young age and kept me in the field as I got older.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The measurement of science and mathematics. Every project is different whether it be a different environment or different type of project, that in itself gives you something to look forward to every day.
What are you most passionate about?
Keeping up to speed on modern technology and practices. To prepare, I go to industry technical conferences and read articles in Point of Beginning (POB) and American Surveyor magazines. You have to take the time to keep up with technology, new advances and the new ways other professionals are using new technology.
What is your greatest challenge?
Getting people to understand the full spectrum of what 3D reality can capture. The challenge is that people get comfortable on how things are. My job is to help them understand that this technology makes their job easier.
Name an important "lessons learned" moment you have experienced.
If people do not view a project as their own, then they will never take pride in the project.
