What initially attracted you to Trihydro?
Before applying at Trihydro, I was working in Worland, Wyoming and looking to move to a larger and more accessible location in Wyoming. I found an online ad for a CADD technician at Trihydro and was attracted to the company because of its status as the largest engineering company in Wyoming. Laramie seemed like the ideal location for my family since it’s still a relatively small town but close to Cheyenne and Denver.
What do you do at Trihydro?
My work includes creating various types of engineering and environmental drawings, figures, plan sets, and maps using AutoCAD, Map 3D and Civil 3D.
What do you like best about working at Trihydro?
I enjoy Trihydro because there is a wide range of working styles depending on a given project. Also, Trihydro, like Wyoming, provides a good balance between hard work, technology, and a family-like atmosphere.
What is your favorite type of project to work on and why?
I enjoy projects where I can apply my artistic abilities to the drawings and where the use of colors is encouraged.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Initially, I wanted to be either a businessman or an artist, but later discovered that an engineering degree would allow me to have a career which could combine the two.
When did you know you wanted to be a CADD technician?
In my early career as an agricultural engineer I learned to use AutoCAD for designing agricutural prototypes. I learned to enjoy the software, and when we moved to the U.S. from the Philippines, I decided I wasn’t sure I wanted to go through all the paperwork to be an accredited engineer. I decided that being a CADD technician would be just as rewarding and have the bonus of being able to apply my artistic abilities to my work.
What is a fun fact about you?
I love R&B, jazz, and basketball.
