Philip Tapia, PE
What’s your current position at Randall Lamb?
Principal Mechanical Engineer, San Francisco
What is your favorite cause?
A local community education foundation. I believe that giving children the opportunity to reach their full educational potential is extremely important, especially when funding for public education is continually being cut. A quality education is key to a better life, and has a positive impact on our communities.
If you weren’t an engineer, what would you be?
I would have a career in healthcare. My grandfather was a family doctor and my mother a public health administrator. A realistic alternative career at this point and time would be a Physician’s Assistant. But honestly, my ideal unrealistic job choice would be a Porsche test driver!
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy ping pong, cars, landscaping, chess, basketball and outdoor activities.
