After 39 years of engineering and architectural work experiences, I can still honestly say I love what I do for a living. During my first interview for a summer internship position while still attending Oklahoma State University, the seasoned engineer who was interviewing me stated that he thought of structural engineering as an “art form.” Although I ended up working for a more practical workaholic engineer that summer, the idea of engineering as an art form has always stuck.
Being a member of a multi-discipline team here at Cyntergy that is focused on delivering projects specifically tailored to a client’s needs, budgets and goals have given me the opportunity to deliver not only safe and efficient engineered structures, but structures that aesthetically express the artistic side of engineering and directly satisfy the functional goals for the project.
I remain active in professional societies including Oklahoma Structural Engineers Association and the Project Management Institute. I have been a member of First United Methodist Church for 30 years and am concluding my term on the Board of the Assistance League of Tulsa where my wife has been an active member.
