What sets ms apart from other engineering & architecture firms?
Having worked at a couple other firms, I think what really sets ms apart from other firms is our people. We really do go that extra mile for our clients and projects.


What is the most surprising thing you’ve learned while working at ms?
All the different services we offer. With my background, I was mostly familiar with commercial projects.


Which project are you most proud to have been a part of, and why?
It sounds kind of funny, but I’m the most proud of being involved with changes in the retail stores I see every day, such as ALDI. It isn’t often I get to walk through a building that I was actively involved in.


What were your favorite hobbies as a child? Do they mimic what you do today?
As a child, I was very active in sports such as football, basically anything outside.  While I don’t tackle my colleagues, football taught me the skills to work together as a team, which is ultimately what results in a successful project.


What would you go back and tell your 22 year old self?
Just live each day and don’t stress over the little things.


What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Going to the beach, playing sports, pretty much anything outside


Any final words?
I appreciate the opportunities I have been given here and hope for many more years
