Tell us about your background in what you used to work as before you began at Civilitude.
Before college I worked as a waiter, food handler and cashier. During college I worked as a machinist, delivery driver and paleontological intern. After college I worked as an Archaeological Field Technician conducting field work, excavations and lab analysis for projects across Texas, Louisiana, Colorado and Idaho. In between gigs I worked as a carpenter and pedi-cab driver. I then traveled the world a bit and came back to Austin where I started working as an EMT in the Critical Care unit at the old Brackenridge Hospital. I found engineering after I took a CAD course at ACC and I haven’t looked back. Fast-forward 8 years or so and here I am!
