If you could pick one of your job activities or a recent project to describe as special, what would it be and why? RoadConnect would be top of the list. It is a new solution Lindsay is developing for transportation and smart city infrastructure. The platform is a remote roadside asset monitoring platform, gives you the ability to remotely monitor key road and highway assets such as crash cushions, guardrails, end terminals, utility poles, bridge structures and more. The goal is to increase the speed and reliability of roadside maintenance, save time and money while also improving road safety. The journey is fast paced and ever changing but a lot of fun.

List five hashtags that describe you personally. #Loyal #Kind #Ambitious #Reliable #Quirky

What is something on your bucket list that you have not checked off yet? Travel. So many places to see. I would like to prioritize someday and start seeing the world.

What is one fun fact about yourself? I've got a 5-year-old boy and a 3-year-old daughter.

What is your idea of a great day? Some productive time, alone time, friends, and family. Great weather doesn't hurt.

If you were an animal, what would you be? Why? Dinosaur, any dinosaur. Would make my kids incredibly happy as they are currently obsessed with them.

If you could invite three people, dead or alive, to a dinner party, who would you invite? Both of my grandfathers and my son. I didn't get a lot of time with them growing up and getting some time with them and introducing the little man of the family would be special.

Would you rather be able to speak any language or be able to communicate with animals? Speak any language for sure! Being able to communicate with anyone effectively seems like a superpower.

What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery? Likely whatever my wife had her eye on.

If you could time travel, where would you like to travel to? Ancient Egypt would be fascinating.

When it comes to snacks, do you prefer salty or sweet? List your favorite treat. Salty, any bag of chips I can get my hands on I'll be a happy guy.

If you could choose to have one superpower, what would it be and why? I really dislike the process of traveling, so I'd have to say teleportation.
