Hello everyone, my name is Erik Fiske, and I am this year’s Secretary. I am currently going into my senior year at San Diego State University. I was born in Encinitas California and raised in Carlsbad. I’ve been living in San Diego my whole life, which shows in some of the activities I enjoy doing. When I am not working on engineering-related activities you can find me at the beach or in the mountains. In my free time, I try to stay as active as possible. Some of my favorite hobbies consist of surfing, snowboarding, and hiking. However, any sort of exercises such as weightlifting or running makes me happy. Ever since I was a kid I have always been intrigued by Civil Engineering. My dad was one of those do-it-yourself people, so his workbench became my playground. This led to my early fascination with building things. I found joining ASCE to be incredibly beneficial. The organization has taught me many valuable things as well as connect me with new friends and companies. I am looking forward to bringing my involvement with this chapter to the next level and am excited for what's to come.
