San Jose Branch Director
U.S. Concrete National Research Lab Manager
How long have you been a civil engineer?
6 years as a licensed PE, 10 years working at US Concrete
Why are you involved in ASCE?
ASCE involvement was a significant part of my college years. As a member of the San Jose State student chapter, I competed for 4 years in the concrete canoe competition, served one year as Treasurer, and in graduate school I helped host the Mid-Pacific Regional Conference of 2013. The relationships I made through that involvement have been very important to me and are a primary reason of how I progressed onto the board of the San Jose Branch.
How has being an ASCE member helped you and/or your career?
Being an ASCE member has helped improve my networking skills and expand my perspective beyond my career-specific discipline of concrete.
What was your most memorable ASCE experience?
The 2010 concrete canoe competition where SJSU's team competed in the National Competition in San Luis Obispo!
Tell us something about yourself that isn’t on your professional resume?
I'm a big fan of fresh pasta and the San Jose Sharks.
What do you enjoy most about engineering?
Building technical expertise, communicating data, and hands-on tasks.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
Coming up with a plan to celebrate my 10-year work anniversary!
