Why CDM Smith? CDM Smith is a firm that drives high-quality projects to create value for our clients. We have technically superior, extremely dedicated employees that truly love what they do. We are a firm that improves the lives of all people in the work we do on a day-to-day basis. What can be more rewarding than that?

What inspires you? What inspires me is a when ideas come to life. Our designers and constructors bring some of the most challenging projects to reality, because they have the talent to do so. We have created a tremendous amount of value for our clients and improved the quality of life for many. Nothing more inspiring than that!

Which one of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most and why? I identify with initiative, because without it many of the others don’t exist. Initiative exemplifies the willingness to do what is necessary to achieve your and your client’s goals. It is an active approach to creating progress and advancement.

What’s the best part of your work day? I drive to and from the office, and I like to take advantage of it in different ways—for example calling the West Coast in the evening to catch up with staff there or just listening to my favorite sports radio station.
