In 1985, after being licensed as a Professional Engineer, my Area Engineer told me something that continues to be true to this day -- "there will always be a need for someone who can understand both the engineering required to design and build a building, and who can understand how to apply technology to organizations to make that job easier." As my career has grown from construction project engineer, to research program manager, to Government Civil Engineer of the Year, to national industry office holder, to Founder Prairie Sky Consulting in 2014, this down-to-earth perspective is never far from my thoughts.
Throughout my career, I have focused on the need to standardize, streamline, and improve the quality of the design and construction process. Starting with leading projects focused on reducing the cost of public facilities during design, construction, and claims phases by leveraging technology, to recognizing the need to increase data efficiency and leading development of the open Building Information Modeling, I am inspired by the progress made. Today, I continue to address implementation challenges and am confident that these challenges can be overcome by persistent effort.
