QUESTION: WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND AND CAREER PATH? 
ANSWER: I attended Indiana University-Bloomington where I majored in Biology and minored in German. I thought I wanted to be a doctor, but after several summer internships in medical laboratories, I realized I didn’t like sick people or hospitals. I pushed through with my pre-med biology degree and talked my way into an environmental field professional position after college. I had no idea environmental consulting existed and I had taken zero environmental science or geology courses in college. I’ve learned everything on the job, but my solid science background steeped in the scientific method and sample collection really helped me excel.   

Q: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT BEING RECOGNIZED BY YOUR COWORKERS? 
A: It’s great to be recognized by my colleagues. I think one of my strengths is my ability to pitch in wherever needed and do whatever is needed to get the job done. I firmly believe no one is above any job. Do the best with what you have, when you have it, be selfless, and get the job done. 

Q: WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT WORKING AT ENVIROFORENSICS? 
A: Culture. My selling point to people interviewing with EnviroForensics is our culture. We don’t hire jerks; I feel I can approach anyone on our team with a problem and I won’t be judged for what I don’t know. We truly rely on each other’s strengths. 

Q: WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR MOST EXCITING PROJECTS AT ENVIROFORENSICS? 
A: In my new due diligence role, I enjoy working with people who have limited knowledge of environmental work by educating them on the process and delivering a unique solution to their unique problem. However, if I had to pick one, it would be my liaison work with the City of Franklin. It’s really rewarding helping the City move forward with their environmental challenges and their redevelopment needs. Their amphitheater project is a perfect example of what we do best: taking a former commercial/industrial property and helping the client navigate the environmental portions of the project, which allows them to redevelop it into something useful for the community. I’m really looking forward to the amphitheater grand opening in Fall 2021.   

Q: WHAT IS YOUR LIFE LIKE OUTSIDE OF ENVIROFORENSICS? 
A: It mostly involves chasing my two and four-year-olds, Gwen and Lorelei, and trying to balance work, parenting, and pandemic life with my wife, Melissa. When not working or wiping butts, I enjoy weightlifting, playing with my dog Igor, playing golf, and cooking, especially with my smoker. My pulled pork and ribs can’t be beaten!
