Why the AEC industry? What I really enjoy about my job is that every day is different. Every project is a prototype. I’m still learning. My home also benefits from my never-ending interest in what I do at work every day. To be more energy conscious, I installed an instantaneous condensing hot water heater—which provides much better efficiency (and made my gas bill go down by 30%!). I also intend to install photovoltaic panels on my roof, but for now, let’s just say that project is still in the conceptual phase.
