What was your first position/job in the A/E/C Industry? Intern/project engineer

Why the A/E/C Industry? Growing up, I always loved building things and watching things be built. It felt like a natural choice to go into the AEC industry. 

Keys to success: Perseverance and hard work. If you have a family, having a spouse who can pick up parts of the work load has been a key to my success. 

If you had to choose one word to explain why you do what you do, which one most suits you and why? I love learning, seeing, hearing, and even smelling construction. I have always loved seeing construction sites and watching the workers do what they do and seeing the ultimate finished product. To get to be a part of that process fuels my passion for my work.
