What inspires you? I’m inspired by the people around me. I’m constantly meeting our brilliant talent across the country and I’m amazed by their passion for improving communities and the environment, their understanding of our global challenges, and their thoughtfulness for each other. When I experience that, I challenge myself to perform in such a way that it would make them proud and me worthy to be in my role.
How might clients describe you? I hope that they will describe me as an honorable person, a collaborative engineer and a passionate professional who works tirelessly to help them solve their toughest challenges.
What are you 3 non-work passions? I have a passion for education. In addition to teaching and guest lecturing classes, I’m constantly seeking ways to improve the learning process. Though I’ve been doing this for a while, I’ve become more passionate about it since my son started pre-K a year ago. Another is my desire to learn about others (people, cultures and places). Of course the best way to do this is to travel. Third, and this is a new one for me, I’ve become passionate about understanding global historic events and people. There’s much wisdom in looking at the past that can inform our actions moving forward.
What’s something that people might be surprised to know about you? I’m now teaching myself to play the guitar. I play a couple of other instruments, but I’ve always wanted to play the guitar. So I bought one last year and I’m slowly learning.
We provide an energized platform to deliver solutions. We don’t just apply what works; we apply what works best.
Hampik isn't just a water expert; he has professional experience in the fields of water resources, engineering, information technology management and operations system planning.
