Hi, Justin! We’re excited to get to know you better. Tell us a little bit about where you’re from and where you went to school.

I was born in New York and was raised in Irving, Texas. I went to Texas A&M University and graduated in December 2016 with my Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering.

Justin Celentano 1

What drew you to the engineering profession?

My dad works as a custom home builder, so I’ve always been around construction drawings my entire life. I was interested in doing something similar to what he did on a larger scale, so land development engineering was perfect for me!

What types of projects have you worked on?

I’ve worked on multiple multi-family developments, industrial warehouses, and office spaces all around Texas.

What’s your get-pumped song?

“Freaks and Geeks” by Childish Gambino.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to work out (I go to F45 every day), watch the same shows on Netflix repeatedly, hang out with friends, and read books/poems.

The Golden Compass – Phillip Pullman

What does your ideal vacation look like?

Sitting on the beach and relaxing.

Any interesting facts about yourself that you’d like to share?

Who or what inspires you?
