Why Did You Join Sanborn Head?
I joined Sanborn Head in 1996, because I knew I could trust the Principals of the firm as co-workers, business partners and friends. That trust still holds true today, and I couldn’t imagine a more collegial business environment.

What Is It Like To Work At Sanborn Head?
At Sanborn Head, all members of a project team work very closely together with entry level junior staff working right alongside Principals and other senior staff. We have a very dedicated group of professionals that work hard to meet our client’s needs, while at the same time, taking care of each other every day.

Fun Facts About Me
I have always been a sports nut. Growing up, I played scholastic baseball, ice hockey and football. I enjoy flying general aviation airplanes, golf, back country fly fishing and hiking. I have climbed the tallest peaks in the Continental US on both sides of the Mississippi River; Mt. Whitney at 14,495 feet and Mt. Washington at 6,288 feet. The past four years, I have participated in the 500-mile AirVenture Cup air race into Oshkosh, Wisconsin together with my cousin.
