OFFICE LOCATION

WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB?

The variety and scope of projects that come across my desk. One day I may be working on a small residential tract; the next, a commercial development; and then a roadway project the following week. My workday and work week are never the same and are never dull.

IF YOU WEREN’T AN ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNER, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?

I would be a travel journalist. While in the US Navy, I lived in Japan for 2 years and in Turkey for 1.5 years. I have visited five continents and have only South America and Antarctica to visit next.

I worked at LSA from 1998 to 2010, and then traveled the country for three-quarters of the year before settling in Louisiana for 4 years where I worked for the State Dept of Transportation. Then, I migrated back to California and LSA in 2014.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?

Line cook at Mr. Steak, a steakhouse, while I was in high school in Highland, California.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO WORK HARD?

Being exposed to different opportunities—working in this field I’ve encountered every type of challenge.

WHO IS/WAS YOUR MENTOR?

Lynn Calvert-Hayes, who taught me everything I know. When I was interning at City of Hesperia, Lynn knew my boss and told him she needed someone reliable. That’s how Lynn hired me!
