How did you become involved in engineering?
“I always liked architecture, and then I realized I wasn’t an artist. I was more interested in how things were put together.”
Where do you think you excel?
“I’d say probably taking problems, breaking them down and making them simple. People can understand what you are doing.”
What is the major challenge for you in engineering?
“The major part of engineering, once you begin working, is the process. Real engineering is hands-on. The engineering approach is unique. There’s no textbook way of doing it.”
