“Construction often involves unexpected challenges, so I prefer a collaborative approach where problems are openly discussed and solutions are developed collectively.”

Q: What brought you to the city/town where our office is located?

A: The opportunities it offered, personally and professionally. There is a lot to do in the New Haven area, and it also brought me closer to my family and friends. I was also interested in OCMI’s diverse range of projects that I’d be able to work on at Yale University.

Q: What are some of your favorite local spots to visit?

A: I like to visit Wooster Square, which is well known for its pizza, such as Sally’s Apizza and Frank Pepe. There are also many museums such as Yale Peabody Museum, which just reopened earlier this year.

Q: What are you looking forward to in your current role?

A: I was drawn to this job, particularly to work on the historic buildings at Yale. I really enjoy the architecture on campus and am excited to see its development in the years to come.

Q: What tips or advice would you give someone starting a new job?

A: Pay attention to how things are done in the organization and take notes on the procedures and norms of the company. I also suggest learning as much as possible from more experienced colleagues and taking the initiative to build relationships with coworkers and supervisors.
