- 9 Years at Burns & McDonnell
Daniel loves to motivate people. If there’s a package that needs to go out on time, consider him your biggest cheerleader. He started his career here as an intern and relies on that practical experience every day as he designs substation projects ranging from 13-kV through 345-kV. When he’s not working, he’s likely watching a Kansas City Chiefs game or training for his first triathlon.
I’ve had so many opportunities so I haven’t ever been bored, but if I ever want to go in a different direction I can do it here because it’s such a robust place. I enjoy the diversity of challenges here.
Choosing a superpower? Flying feels pragmatic to Dan. He could whisk his wife away to the Bahamas, and take colleagues to meet clients and see completed jobs — presumably with some sort of sidecar.

How would you describe the culture here?
Culture is a family environment. I spend a lot of time with these people and I enjoy them. I am working on technical projects and meeting deadlines, but that doesn’t stop me from being in the golf league. I am a terrible golfer but a setting like that opens you up and lets people get to know you.
