JUAN CONTRERAS, CPD
Plumbing Design Engineer
What is it that drives you in your position / why do you like doing what you do? I enjoy solving problems most of all. What drives me personally are the challenges and rewards that each day brings – I wake up every morning grateful for another day. I am blessed to be working with such a great group starting with my plumbing team. If there is ever a problem I am having trouble solving, I can reach out to my plumbing team members and nine times out of 10 we come up with a solution.
What do you like doing outside of work? I enjoy painting, manual arts, outdoors and hiking, riding my Harley on lonely back roads in San Diego County, spending time with family, good food, good conversation, and sharing stories.
What is your favorite food / drink / place to travel? My favorite food is FOOD! I am what today’s kids call a “foodie”. When we travel I enjoy tasting the local cuisine. My Favorite is street food – from tacos to the corner hot dog stand.
I have not been able to travel out of the country other than to Mexico. But I would love to visit Europe and more specifically visit Spain and Portugal. But I do love traveling to Guadalajara, Mexico, which is where I am from.
