How did you get to where you are today?

My day to day job involves design work on a computer, checking drawings, meeting clients to discuss projects and visiting my projects when they are being constructed on site.
Who or what inspired you to get into STEM?
My dad got me into Engineering - I think he secretly wanted to be an engineer!
