Who, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most? And why?
I would want to have dinner with Albert Einstein. I think his whole journey through life was fascinating and would want to learn more about his struggles and accomplishments during WWII as well as his workflow and methodologies leading up to his profound theories and discoveries. I think I would learn a lot about his personal journey and learn new ways to improve myself as I continue to go forward through my own life and career.

How did you get into construction?
I started focusing on construction after my freshman year in college. During the spring, we have a carnival and many organizations build two-story themed structures that we call booths over the span of a week. I was part of an organization building a booth and helped frame walls, lay down flooring, install exterior sheathing, paint, and decorate our Jurassic Park-themed booth. I spent most of my days and even pulled a few all-nighters that week to help ensure everything was perfect. My efforts paid off when we won the competition for the best booth. The week was one of the best weeks of my college experience and being part of that team helped further spark my interest in construction and project management.

Who or what inspires you?
My dad inspires me. He was an immigrant from Europe and came to the US with limited knowledge of English. He worked tirelessly to learn English so that he could translate his medical knowledge and become a medical professional here. He came here with very little and was able to get into a good school, start his own business, and provide for all of us. I am very proud of him and always look to him as an example that with hard work I can accomplish anything and overcome any obstacles in my path.

What is one thing on your bucket list and will you accomplish it?
One thing on my bucket list is to visit St. Petersburg, Moscow, and my parents’ home countries in Europe. They are beautiful places and I want to explore and experience Russian culture in person. Though I don’t have a trip planned yet, I hope to soon!
