Where are you from?
Hay River, Northwest Territories
What led you into this field?
Growing up I had an interest in construction, heavy equipment, and watching projects start from nothing and then seeing the completed product in the end.
What is your professional education, background and expertise?
I studied Civil Engineering Technology at NAIT and my work experience in this field started right after I graduated. My experience started in the field as a surveyor’s assistant and then some construction surveying, all the while using AutoCAD for design drafting – which interested me most. Early on in my career I focused on developing my knowledge and skill set on AutoCAD, keeping in tune with its changes over the years and tuning our template for efficient use of the program for our projects, while using its technology to aid in efficient construction methods in the field.
