What is your favorite computer program? Why?
I love Bluebeam because it is an AEC dream tool! One can do anything from renderings, to punch lists, sketches, measurements, documents, etc.  So many construction features in one spot!

What was your favorite subject in school? Why?
Numbers just seem to make sense to me.  There’s zero subjectivity.  Simply right and wrong.

What song best describes you?
I took a 10-question online quiz to answer this question. The results were “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz.  Have to say, I won’t argue.
