Where are you from?
Vancouver, British Columbia
What led you into this field?
I always good at mathematics and geometry, thus I chose to pursue engineering. To fund my university education, I spent one full year surveying on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway in northern BC with the BC Ministry of Highways. The Stewart Cassier highway passes through rugged terrain with large rock cuts, and incredible wildlife. I enjoyed the experience. Further, it gave me the money to complete my university education, the opportunity to work on a large construction project, and I eventually gravitated to the transportation field.
What is your professional education, background and expertise?
I graduated with a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering from the University of British Columbia, and I am a professional member of APEGA and APEGBC. I am currently working on my Project Management Professional designation, and have recently completed several management and leadership courses. I have 35 years-experience in the transportation field, with Alberta Transportation and Consultants with development control, traffic impact assessments, planning, preliminary engineering, design, construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance of primary highways, urban arterial roads and streets, rural, forestry and resource roads, provincial and forestry airports, bridges, ice bridges, a ferry, and winter haul roads for major gravel stockpile operations.
