What's been your most rewarding project(s) while at your firm?

Although I've had several rewarding projects, the most rewarding would be the KC Zoo Penguin Exhibit and the Lenexa Civic Center. Being able to share this world class penguin exhibit and state of art Rec Center with my four year old son, nieces, nephews, and the KC Community is a gift that keeps giving.

Most interesting place you've traveled for work?

Inspecting curtainwall in Shenyang, China was certainly the most interesting business trip I've experienced. Observing the factory life in a third world country, having business meetings with cell phones as the translator and being treated like royalty from partners from a different culture were fascinating and experiences that helped me appreciate where all of our building materials (and daily consumer products) come from.

What inspires you about your profession?

Getting to serve our clients and literally build their dreams is what inspires me most about design and construction field. Getting to work with creative, fun, committed and collaborative partners and colleagues is a very close second.
