Manager of Engineering – New
I joined SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority)
twenty years ago as a diesel mechanic in Bus maintenance and have progressed
through the Bus, Rail and New Equipment Engineering departments. My career at
SEPTA has been very rewarding, first in fulfilling my innate curiosity to
understand ‘Engineering in motion’, that is, the mechanics behind machines and
how to improve them.
What I like about my job are the tangible results, I get a sense of
gratification knowing that I have made a contribution to the collective good of
SEPTA and society.
In my spare time I enjoy fixing something or reading to uncover some
new technology. My leisure goal is riding high-speed trains of the world.
The idea of knowledge sharing sits very well with me, as such, I
contribute to Public Transportation’s knowledge pool through APTA, COMTO and
TCRP. I also believe in providing career guidance and mentoring to aspiring high
school and college students interested in the engineering field in particular
and public transportation in general.
