Employee Spotlight: Christopher Cookingham

Meet Christopher Cookingham! He is a Field Engineer at HEA and was recently selected as an Employee of the Month! Here's a quick Q/A with him:

  • Who would you like to swap places with for a day? Jim Clark in the late 50s. He was a racecar driver in the late 50s and through his death (in a racing crash) in ‘62. He is often referred to as the best racing driver in history, and I think that setting a lap record at the Nürburgring Ring would be an all time moment.
  • What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid? When I was growing up I always wanted to be a fireman, everyone in my family has been a fireman so you could say it’s in my blood. I have every intention to continue that in the near future by joining the volunteer company in the town where I live.
  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? When I’m not working there is a high chance that I am with some of my friends throwing around a disc or playing ultimate frisbee. I also actively follow hockey, football, and baseball. When it isn’t nice enough to go outside I’m usually at the movie theater, hockey rink, or at home playing Red Dead 2.

  • What is your favorite moment while working at HEA? My favorite moment while working for HEA was working with Luke Serkanic and James Almodoval in the old Paramount Theater in Brooklyn. Luke was asked to determine where the existing ductwork goes and what it serves. Without drawings or anyone who knew that information, we had to set off smoke bombs in the duct and have a fan push the air through the duct. We then went through the old building to try and determine where the smoke went. In an old building like that there were some really cool old sections that still showed the original architecture and some of the original film and camera displays.
