    Civil Engineer & Alternative Delivery Project Lead

    • For me, engineering is all about people - it's about developing a solution for someone. My passion is project delivery, especially alternative project delivery, as they are of strategic importance in Saskatchewan. 
    • I enjoy travelling to new places and learning about different cultures. Over the past 15 years, I've travelled extensively throughout many parts of Europe.
