David joined Sportworks Design full-time in 2022 after graduating from the University of Cincinnati. Previously he completed one co-op term in early 2021 with Sportworks and a term in summer 2020 with The Kleingers Group Southwest Regional Institutional Group. Being part of this team, he works on many sports projects, including designs for high schools, collegiate, and professional organizations.
When offered a full-time position for Sportworks, David was eager for the opportunity to turn his passion for sports into a career involving civil engineering. With computer software, in particular AutoCAD, he focuses on the utility, grading, and site layout design of sport engineering projects, including stadiums, arenas, athletic fields, and walking paths. David is excited about working with other sports-minded engineers and feels privileged to work with and under the mentorship of fellow Sportworks members to grow personally and contribute quality work to his highest potential to offer top-notch engineering to every client.
- Been anywhere recently for the first time?
Zion National Park in Utah.
- What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
The first significant purchase I made with my own money was a Honda push lawn mower so I could mow people’s lawns on my street and save up money for a nice bike and then have enough money saved up for a car at age 16. This plan worked.
- How do you like your eggs?
Over-easy on a slice of toast with cheese + avocado.
- What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I hiked off-trail during an out-and-back hike in Rocky Mountain National Park that summits Flattop, Hallets, Otis, and Taylor peaks. Two of my friends and I tried going across the rim between Otis and Hallets and going down the backside of Hallets down to Lake Haiyaha to cut off distance on the route back and it was very steep/dangerous. We nearly ran completely out of water and had many near misses with loose boulders. Takeaway: stay on the trail.
