Tom was destined to build and fix things. His swing set once fell completely apart while he was on it, so he fixed it up and kept on swinging. These days, he favors somewhat larger projects. He’s the kind of guy who geeks out in a power plant control room and who dreams about what kind of infrastructure project he could build for a billion dollars. Isn’t that what most people dream about? I’ve been at Burns & McDonnell for 25 years now. And the person I am now is based on the people I have met during my time here.Tom’s hobbies and likes have a certain consistency. His favorite food is barbecue; his preferred type of film is old war movies and his ideal vacation destination is Montana or Yellowstone.
