Scott’s Role at Falcon: Geotechnical Engineer
Tell us something that might surprise us about you?
I went to a military college (Virginia Military Institute) and played the snare drum in the Marching Band. We marched in parades all over the country including New York City, Disney World, and a seven mile parade in New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
Tell us about what you enjoy doing outside of work.
I enjoy playing ice hockey. I play at least twice a week in local adult leagues and have been able to play at PNC Arena (where the Hurricanes play) on a few occasions.
What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
My family. I have two daughters, age seven and four. My daughters bring me joy and surprise me daily. Being a father has led to me being more patient and a better teacher than I was as a younger man.
Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
Alaska. I did not really know what I was going to see up there prior to the trip, but the incredible landscape, vast amount of land, and variety of animals I saw was amazing. I understand why people go to visit and end up staying.
What do you enjoy most about working at Falcon?
The people. The collection of professionals here have a tremendous combination of personality and knowledge. So many are able to explain complex subjects in a friendly manner to both technical experts and those with little knowledge of the subject matter. I have never worked with a more dedicated and knowledgeable staff.
“Scott is one of Falcon’s geotechnical project managers and his contributions in that arena have been instrumental in the company’s ability to grow. He mostly specializes in managing NCDOT field investigations, report preparation, and roadway and bridge foundation design recommendations. However, he also serves as Falcon’s dedicated Safety Officer and excels at managing field investigations with complex coordination, safety, and logistical demands. Field and project staff frequently compliment Scott’s ability to patiently and thoroughly mentor and guide them, while maintaining his own project responsibilities. When he isn’t juggling his many projects and responsibilities at Falcon, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, and exercising his competitive side in local ice hockey leagues.” – Jeremy Hamm, PE, Geotechnical Services Manager
