Staff Engineer | Wahpeton, ND

Professional Side:

What impact do you hope to make at Interstate Engineering?

I want to be an asset for the company while being part of a group that works to provide realistic solutions to engineering problems that can benefit communities as a whole.

What drew you to the engineering field?

I have always enjoyed tinkering with things and learning about transportation networks (primarily railroads). Civil engineering allowed me to learn the technical side of transportation networks and also led me to discover the wider realm of the civil engineering field.

What is your motto or personal mantra?

If I had one, it would be something along the lines of “be consistently random.”

Beyond Business:

Tell us a bit about your family.

Shelby and I have been married for 5.5 years. We have a son, James, who is 3, and a daughter, Eliana, who is almost 18 months. Between the four of us we find ourselves on many random adventures.

When you aren’t working, where can you be found?

Right now most of my time outside of work is spent with my family. We try to enjoy outdoors and visit parks, or go for bike rides, or go camping.

What inspires you?

Being out in nature (specifically places such as the Black Hills, the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota, and the BWCA).

What book do you recommend most?

Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss
