Which one of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most and why? Initiative. By nature, I am driven to not only meet my challenges to the best of my ability, but also to see the bigger picture and initiate ways to deliver in the most efficient way possible. I enjoy wearing different hats and juggling a variety of balls while not letting any of them drop.
What is your favorite part of your job? I enjoy the challenge of bringing teams together to work toward a common goal. In my project work, I get to work with staff from across the globe. Each one brings a unique set of skills, energy and personality to the table. As the lead of the Northeast Water Services Group within CDM Smith, I’ve been fortunate enough to coordinate a group of very talented and energetic water professionals with varied backgrounds and aspirations. The challenge of working with each of these unique teams to solve some of our most complex environmental challenges is, without question, my favorite part of the job.
What are your 3 non-work passions? Swimming, running and hiking with my wife and daughter. If I enjoyed biking more than hiking I’d likely try triathlons, but the feeling of accomplishment and awe over the natural world after a long day of hiking has always won out for me.
What’s your personal motto? “…To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I'm driven to help reduce the impact humans have on the planet for the sake of all future generations.
