WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?
By far and away, Treasure of the Sierra Madre….the reason? In my opinion, John Huston was the best director there ever was, and the Huston legacy runs deep in Hollywood. Also, it’s a heck of a story, perfectly executed.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM?
Although the friendly rivalries are thick among LSA staff (a sentiment shared by our friends of the blue-jersey persuasion), I have to say the San Francisco Giants. I remember scoring games at Candlestick Park during summer nights that were so cold that I couldn’t hold the pencil to write down a Will Clark double. That, and it was the only place I ever experienced a 15-minute fog delay. Never a World Championship in all those years, then three in the past five. Remarkable!
WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS GOAL THIS YEAR?
I want to continue the positive trend in the area in which I have most sway: the growth of the Northern California Cultural Resources Group. I enjoy seeing my colleagues flourish professionally and expand their skill sets, both technically and managerially. That’s the best way I can contribute to the company and fellow employee-owners in a direct and measurable way (though not always a black-and-white metric): keep the boundaries of the Cultural Resources Group expanding and nurture our incipient specialties (e.g., our recent foray into architectural photography) until we’re known as the industry standard for good service and quality products in those arenas.
WHAT IS THE BEST ATTRIBUTE ABOUT WORKING AT LSA?
In no particular order: smart colleagues, compassionate individuals, balanced approach to resource management, realization that “good process” is what we should really be after, generous benefits, and a cool office in a National Register historic district.
