      I’m an engineer, so I get to apply science in a practical way and get to make heating and hot water for thousands of people every day. It’s great to know that what I do helps keep people warm in the winter :).

      Being a scientist is really just about playing with big toys as an adult. All you’re really doing is learning what happens if you add something to something else or change a certain parameter to something. It’s all pretty fun to be honest.
