Favorite Childhood Memory:

I have many childhood memories from growing up on the family farm near Asheville. We would fish and boat in the pond and I was always interested in how the spillway system and dam embankment worked. We would build rock and mud dams in the creek to divert water and try to change the course of the flow. This is likely where I started to develop my interest in how man-made systems could work together with nature.
