Amanda Dees, PE Project Engineer


What is on your bucket list?

Too many things to count, but I actually have this weird goal to touch a penguin. I’ve always wondered what a penguin would feel like. A couple other things I would also like to do are swim with dolphins, ride a Segway and hot air balloon, and be in a flash mob.

If you played hooky for a day, where would we find you?

If I played hooky for a day, it would probably be to enjoy the amazing weather or to attend a musical event whether it be SXSW or ACL Fest.

If you could have any celebrity live next door to you, who would it be?

I think I’d have to go with Ellen DeGeneres. I think she’s hilarious, plus she’s got a lot of celebrity friends she could bring around.

If you had no fear, what would you do?

I would go skydiving.

What are your top 3 things to do/see in Austin?

Food! I love trying new places. The Greenbelt or Town Lake. I like to enjoy the great weather and natural resources here in Austin. Shop. Austin doesn’t necessarily have the best shopping, but nevertheless, I tend to shop on a regular basis.
