Tell us a little about yourself?
I have a wife, a kid and two dogs.
How did you first learn about PSC?
Working in the A/E field in Lubbock, it’s kind of hard NOT to learn about PSC.
Before working at PSC, what was the most unusual/interesting job you’ve ever had?
One summer during my undergraduate years, I worked for a geologist analyzing core samples for oil companies, we also digitized microscope slides for college biology departments.
If you could pick one theme for PSC to turn into a book about the company, what would it be?
It’s not really a theme, but the 03 break conversations in Lubbock would make a great coffee table book.
What has been your favorite project at PSC?
Permian HS in Odessa – Go MOJO! It was my first PSC project – Very large, complicated and had just about everything you could cram into a project. Academic wing, dens, athletic facility, tennis courts and facility, gymnasium, band hall, choir room, kitchen, and cafeteria. We collaborated with teams all over the state, El Paso, Austin, Dallas, Amarillo, Midland, and Lubbock. It was a great way to get introduced to PSC.
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
If we’re being serious: Jesus, fo shizzle. And my family. Also, vanilla cream Dr. Pepper from Sonic. #Addicted.
What is your proudest moment at PSC?
The first time I was able to say, “I’m an Architect with Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper.”
If you could switch your job with anyone else within PSC, whose job would you want and why?
Our fearless leaders Joe Rapier – He’s got a pretty sweet mustache.
Tell us a little bit about your family.
My wife and I both grew up in Houston and even went to the same high school, but didn’t know each other. We met the summer after I finished my undergrad while out with some mutual friends, I asked her to dance, and the rest as they say, is history. I even somehow convinced her to move to Lubbock. Neither of us thought we would ever move back to Houston until we decided to start a family. We have an 18-month-old daughter who is the light of our lives.
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.

3. My middle name is Taze.
