Q & A with Jamey Gray, PLS

If you weren’t in your current career field, what else would you be doing?

I have a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Pratt Institute which is an art & design school. I still produce work and exhibit both regionally and nationally so it’s somewhat of a side hustle. Occasionally I even sell something! If I wasn’t in my current field I would be finding a way of doing it full-time.

What is your favorite project you’ve worked on and why?

I was on a team that consulted on a joint venture project between FEMA and New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP). We conducted a detailed flood study for the six watersheds and reservoirs that supply NYC with their drinking water. I visited the area several times which was located in the Catskills, helped facilitate community meetings with local residents, and met and collaborated with a great group of people. The project manager at NYCDEP commented that it was the highlight of his career after its completion and it truly was an amazing experience for me as well.
