I'm a 1986 graduate of Morrison. I spent 18 months working at Illinois Bell as a drafter upon graduation before landing at Hanson. I've been with Hanson for 29 years and have served many rolls: surveying, environmental field work, construction oversight, archaeology, civil CADD, & water resources.
My current work consists of geotechnical, structural, and water/wastewater design & drafting as well as quantity calculations. A majority of my work is in GIS, Microstation, & AutoCAD.

A few of the bigger projects I've worked on include: lead technician for the Stratton Lock and Dam removal and replacement in McHenry County, IL., Low Level Radioactive Waste Storage studies in Illinois, design/CADD work for all 44 retaining walls on the I-74 corridor through Peoria, and I am scheduled to be the CADD lead for a multi-year flood management project starting in July of this year.
I really enjoyed my time at Morrison Tech and feel like it kick started a very rewarding career.
