Why did you decide on Sundt for your summer internship?
Not only did Sundt allow me to have a new internship experience, it also made sure I was taken care of throughout the process. Sundt has made it possible for me to learn as much as possible without feeling the burden of living and travel expenses.
What does a typical day look like for you?
So far a typical day at the Air Force base consists of completing submittals and making sure all of the tasks needed to meet the environmental requirements of the project are met for the day. I have many meetings to attend during the week that allow me to see what is going on around the project. If there isn’t much office paperwork to do, I will jump in someone’s truck and spend the day with them to see what their job is like.
What’s your favorite type of cuisine?
Pasta in all forms. Working in Arkansas this summer I have started to develop a taste for southern barbeque.
What’s a book you have read recently?
I am in the middle of reading “2 Second Lean,” which I got from my Sundt 101 training course.
What’s your Favorite quote/inspirational saying?
One quote I find myself falling back on while working this summer is this: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” All projects can get difficult, but even in the hard times everyone keeps it together and works even harder to get the job done.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to go to the gun range or watch movies. When I am back in Colorado, I like to spend time at my girlfriend’s parents’ farm riding horses and playing with their dogs and cats.
