Tim Rynders, PE
Why CDM Smith? My direct managers and technical mentors have worked hard to get to know my strengths, support me in my weaknesses, and give me a world of opportunity to be the most valuable engineer I can be. It’s our talented people that make up CDM Smith’s empowering culture.
What’s your favorite part of your job? Hunting down interesting topics and searching for clients who believe there’s a better way to do everything. In my moments of uncertainty, I’ve learned to focus, reach out for help, be resourceful and humble. I love this demanding part of my job.
What do you enjoy doing on your day off? Eating as big a breakfast as humanly possible with 2.5 mugs of black tea and then doing something outdoors like gardening, brewing, biking with my twins or playing with our chickens.
What inspires you? Vulnerability, passion, humility, commitment and punk rock music.
Doing a good job is great. Doing a good job helping someone in need is entirely better.
