I’m excited to announce that I’ll be joining KPFF‘s Portland office full-time starting in January doing structural engineering. If you’re familiar with my work in WordPress or music composition, you may be surprised to learn that I am not pursuing a career in either field. I enjoy making things; software development and music composition are both ways that I can quickly create and iterate on projects (and I’ll continue to do so in my spare time). Building design and construction requires a much slower and more complex process, but the creation of physical space is ultimately the most rewarding design process I’ve experienced. For that reason, I’m trilled to embark on my full-time career designing building structures.
I wrote about my internship with KPFF’s Portland Structural office this summer on the company blog: https://www.kpff.com/blog/news/post/my-experience-as-an-intern-at-kpff-portland.
This was my first experience in my specific career field and was extremely insightful.
