I work on a variety of structural engineering projects from Burning Man structures to tech campuses to deliver robust, efficient, and innovative designs to clients.
I did my Bachelors in Civil Engineer with a Math Minor at Cal Poly Pomona, and completed my Masters in Structural Engineering at Stanford University.
I love how my career engages my critical thinking skills through challenging problem solving, brings me out to help clients in the office and out on the field, and contributes in a meaningful and necessary way to society.
It’s kind of impossible to not incorporate my queer identity in my work. Who I am affects how I solve problems, understand my relationships with colleagues, and motivates what I want to leave behind in this world. My goal in life us to make the world a safer and kinder place and that directly stems from being a gay man and a structural engineer.
Outside of the initial fear of coming out within the office at first, I luckily haven’t experienced anything that I’d describe as a negative experience so far. I felt way more comfortable and authentic at work once I came out, and my relationships with coworkers have grown because of it.
Mentorship has been a huge blessing in my career experience. I have a queer mentor in my company who understands so much of my perspective and is a great friend to have in the office and in life.
