Why did you choose EV?

The variety of projects we do are great!  No two days are really ever the same.  But it’s the people here at EV that make us who we are.  I enjoy coming in to work every day mainly because of the great folks I get to call my “work friends” (to quote my oldest son).

What gives you the most satisfaction in your work?

Seeing something I’ve worked on being built.  To me, it’s the most rewarding and satisfying feeling as a professional to see something go from a computer screen/model to real life.

What’s the best advice you’ve received—so far?

“No matter how good you are at what you do, someone will eventually come along and be better.  So never settle.” – my dad (Michel Gingue)

If you were deserted on an island, what one thing would you want to have with you?

A boat.

Who or what inspires you?

My sons and my wife.  I wake up each day wanting to be the best I can be for them.

If you had to choose a different career, what would it be?

Football coach.  Coached for a few years (youth and high school levels) before my kids were born.  Loved the teaching, strategizing and the joy of watching it all come together on game day, especially when a player accomplishes something they’d worked hard at!
