maxTell us a little bit about where you’re from and where you went to school: Born and raised in between Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio and started working in Austin right after. Slowly moving up IH 35.

What drew you to this profession? My grandfather and father are both civil engineers. Social pressure or destiny??

What types of projects have you worked on? I’ve worked on several commercial and mixed-use site plans start to finish in central Austin.

Where’s your favorite place to eat? Suerte in Austin.

What do you like to do in your free time? Shred sessions on my guitar and play with my pug.

maxWhat does your ideal vacation look like? Adventure in the morning. Tequila at night.

What would be impossible for you to give up? Music.

Any interesting facts about yourself that you’d like to share? I saved up money to buy a sailboat during college by selling educational books door to door. Once I got the boat I sailed from Houston to Tampico, Mexico.

maxWho or what inspires you? I’m inspired by the opportunity to make new stories. My grandfather always has the best stories about his past. I want to be able to tell the same to my grandchildren one day.

Everyone at WGI has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours? You should always push yourself to grow and learn. A mentor told me that if I’m not scared about my next step then it’s not worth it. The opportunity that WGI has given me is great and I will be required to grow as an engineer and leader.

Thanks for your time, Max. We’re excited to have you on the WGI team!
