Paint my Civil Engineering Dreams
I have always enjoyed going to museums since I was small. Growing up, the first time I saw an NSX and then talked to a mechanical engineer, I knew I wanted to become some type of engineer that could create something out of nothing. While going to College I realized that what I really wanted to do was design cars purely as art, not the technical part. I ended up transferring from Mechanical Engineering to Civil Engineering halfway through my degree. I also had a fondness for buildings and how they looked. My head has always been pointed towards the clouds, and land design seemed like the place of unlimited dreams. What other professions can take something that everyone physically sees and turn it into their own real life creation? Only a very few. I feel like all of the consultants that I work with on projects are playing the game, Populous.
Lately I have felt so lucky to be able to use the land as my own canvas in the past and present. David Hockney’s Mullholland Drive painting up above, which hangs above my kitchen sink, is one of my favorites. This painting really shows off how my mind is thinking all day when I want to paint my Civil Engineering dreams.
