“Growing up playing sports and going on to play football throughout college, I know how important it is to have a safe and well-maintained athletic facility. Designing sports and recreation facilities allows me to combine my passion for sports with my problem-solving skills while delivering successful projects to our clients. Even more importantly, I find satisfaction in knowing that I’m working to do my part in allowing others to experience quality sports and recreation facilities and delivering environmentally responsible projects in a world that is facing serious environmental stresses.”
