What inspired you to enter your profession?
Tell us about the greatest challenge you had while you were in school.
My biggest hurdle was learning to write in a concise, orderly way. There were a few writing assignments I submitted which came back with very low marks. I wrote many pages of words, but there was no clear thesis. I learned to write so that I was actually communicating with the reader.
What innovations should we watch for in the field of energy?
How do you give back to your community?
I, along with my wife, assist newly engaged couples to have successful starts to their marriages. I coach Tee-ball and basketball for young children in the local area. I donate to charity and also volunteer my time discussing my career and industry with graduate students at a local university.
