The best bit about my job: It’s extremely satisfying to help site teams and contractors understand their obligations and watch the structures grow.

How I de-stress: I jump in my canoe, find a quiet river and go for a fish.

Guilty pleasure: Jack Daniels and …just Jack Daniels.
Advice to my teenaged self: Don’t do as I do, do as I say.
