Q/A with Joseph Kennedy, Field Engineer II
Employee of the Month: August 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
Scotland/Ireland. My wife would love to go there. I’ve been to northern Scotland (Aberdeen) for oilfield work and the little time I got to spend exploring it was a very interesting place to be.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
I study martial arts; specifically Northern Shaolin Kung Fu.

Describe your perfect Saturday.
Waking up to my awesome kids and spending some time with them before going to kung fu class, and then spending the day with my family hopefully doing fun activities! Going to the park, having a fire at night, listening to my wife play guitar while our children run around outside.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
Play any instrument so I can play with my wife.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
The talented and friendly people at HEA make the company what it is. I enjoy meeting new, different people and interacting with different clients keeps it interesting for me. My co-workers at HEA is what I like best though.

Q/A with Tucker Hubbell, Field Engineer II
Employee of the Month: July 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
I would vacation in New Zealand.  It is so far away from everything else geographically, I want to see that part of the world.  I also want to see the landscape that they used to film the Lord of the Rings movies.  Finally, you can snowboard and surf in the same day there!

What is something about you that would surprise people?
At HEA, it is probably the fact that I am from Minnesota.  Most of the company seems to be from New York, so it is funny to me to hear people talk about the Giants and Pats in their thick, East-Coast accents. (I do not have a Minnesota accent, by the way.)

Describe your perfect Saturday?
In college I played football, so game days were the best.  If I could have snuck a round of golf in there somewhere it would have been perfect!

What is something you would like to learn to do?
My dad was a pilot in the Navy, and still flies commercially.  I want to get my pilot’s license.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
I like that I can have a beer with the CEO!

Employee of the Month: May 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?

Anywhere???  Well that depends on what “space” I’m in…  adventure & spirit travels have me leaning towards Ancient Lake Titicaca and the Ancient City in Peru.

What is something about you that would surprise people?

Other than choosing the above travel destination, LOL…   I’ve traveled the open roads from Alaska to Mexico City on my motorcycle.

Describe your perfect Saturday?

Camped out on a mountain summit overlooking a body of water on a warm day while interacting and talking with nature.

What is something you would like to learn to do?

Play the piano, learn multiple foreign languages, read energy/memory signatures of matter, help people with their visible/invisible problems.  

What do you like best about working at HEA?

Well that would be its supportive/knowledgeable staff, dynamic work/office environment and being a part of NYCs growth.

Q/A with Chris Fasano, Project Engineer
Employee of the Year 2016

Any favorite quote or line from a movie?

  • “The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.” – Carl Sagan “Pale Blue Dot”

Do you have an office nickname? What is it?

  • I’m Maverick
  • John Lutz is “Iceman”
  • Jordan Ridgley is “Goose”
  • Joann is “Charlie”
  • The North Carolina office is TOP GUN!

How do you define success?

  • I consider myself successful when I am able to find happiness within myself, its that simple.

How has HEA helped you in your career development?

  • EXPOSURE. Our involvement and position on projects has allowed me to connect and network with some amazing people within the industry.

What advice do you have for HEA new hires?

  • Your time at HEA will provide many opportunities, TAKE THEM ALL. Always answer the call, you will be amazed where it takes you.

What has been your favorite project at HEA?

  • Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
