“The biggest satisfaction I get is when I see all the people working on retail projects—thinking about the family members and other people who depend on them, and how we’re impacting all those lives.”

  1. Influences

    “I wasn’t one of those people who knew early on that I was going to be an engineer. My parents recognized my strong interest in Math and Science and suggested I look into engineering as a career. All these years later, I would say their advice has paid off."

  2. Dunham's Culture

    “I started at Dunham in 1998 because I knew several people who worked here and liked the culture. It’s always been a very employee-oriented place, a good atmosphere for mentoring and learning. It’s a place where people treat each other the way they want to be treated. We’re all here to learn, no matter how much experience we have, so no one’s afraid to ask questions, and we treat each other with respect.”

  1. Challenges

    “My favorite challenge is managing people and meeting deadlines while always producing high-quality work. I look for people who want to challenge themselves. Some of the hardest things to teach are effective communication, how to take a team approach and not take things personally. I look for people who get that.”

  2. Family

    “I like to travel with my wife and three kids. When my daughter got married, we were able to take a cruise up to Alaska. It’s hard to explain that landscape - it doesn’t really come across very well in pictures - but it’s spectacular. The biggest satisfaction I get is when I stand up and see all the people working on retail projects—thinking about how much we’ve grown, and how everyone working on these projects has family members and other people who depend on them, and how we’re impacting all those lives. Once in a while, it just hits you how amazing that is.”
