WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM?
I grew up in Upstate New York and became a Buffalo Bills fan. The 1990s were a lot of fun, except for the four Super Bowl losses. Scott Norwood‘s missed field goal to win the championship game still haunts me to this day.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VACATION SPOT?
My grandfather built a log cabin in the mountains of New Mexico in 1941. Fishing, hiking, chopping wood, and horseback riding are daily activities. I have been to the cabin every summer since I’ve been born. The photo (above) shows the Red River Upper Valley.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?
I was the neighborhood paperboy, having to deliver the newspaper to over 30 households every afternoon. This was a huge responsibility as a kid, coming home from school and delivering the paper in the sun, snow, wind, or rain. I learned about commitment, client interaction, and finances, as I had to collect fees from my customers every week.
TELL US YOUR JOURNEY AND THE STEPS YOU TOOK TO CHOOSE YOUR CURRENT CAREER.
Sociology, how does that relate to Transportation and Mobility? Believe it or not, I have found that my college degree (a social science that uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis) does have applicability to the industry that I have chosen. Having a mathematical and statistical background along with an understanding of social behavior has certainly influenced my career as I evaluate vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian behavior within a community.
