+How did you get interested in transportation?
My dad. He does the same thing I now do and growing up hearing about all the cool things he was involved in eventually convinced me to pursue a similar career.
+What do you like best about working at W+A?
The company culture. Wells is not only a job, it’s a big extended family. I enjoy everyone within the company, in different ways, and the ways we interact and socialize together.
+How do you relax?
My favorite way to relax has to be back home, sitting around the fire pit, hanging with family and friends, enjoying a cold beer, country music playing, and throwing a toy for the dogs to retrieve.
+The best advice you ever received?
Don’t care what others think of you. When a person finally realizes this is when they learn to live and let go. You live once, so live it up.
