1. What drew you to Hoyle Tanner?

My former supervisor had worked in aviation and hearing about what he did, drew me into the aviation field. One of my peers had recommended Hoyle Tanner because they had an aviation group.

2. What’s something invaluable you’ve learned here? (Please elaborate your answer)

I’ve learned a lot about engineering, so I can’t choose just one thing. But, for the lunch hour, I’ve learned that at the Gyro Spot on Elm Street, ordering the chicken burrito with sauce on the side because sauce in the burrito makes the tortilla soggy.

3. What’s your favorite time of year to work at Hoyle Tanner & why?

Summer is my favorite time of the year to work at Hoyle Tanner because that is when projects are under construction. I travel a lot and get to see a lot of really cool places during the construction season.

The coolest thing I am working on is finding the required soil filter area for Pittsfield Municipal Airport in Maine. Dealing with soil filters and drainage is something new for me.

I went to Disney World and met my brother and his family!
