Creative Engineer

A person who works to identify real-world problems and recognizing that multiple solutions -- or no solution for that matter -- may be needed. Such perspective comes from a diverse background, which allows the person  to improvise and confront new situations on the fly. A creative engineer can adapt to change and successfully take on new problems without a set formula. Some characteristics of creativity are easy to spot, while others are almost unrecognizable.

Some have asked about how these overlap and I quickly recall colleagues who are purest in each area. I have friends who strictly think technology and nothing else. Others who are the best classroom instructor you will meet but can't teach in a simulated setting. Still others who are amazing researchers without the skill of classroom, simulation, nor technology. While I never claim to be the rock star at each of these, I specialize in the overlap which is where I shine.
