STEVE HACKETT

Mechanical Engineering 

Bachelor of Engineering: Mechanical 

Born and raised in Castlegar B.C., Steve spent 5 years in Victoria to complete his undergraduate degree. He returned to the Kootenays for the combination of work and play (fishing, camping, snowboarding). Steve began working with the DROP team in early 2016 having worked previously in the sawmill, public transit, and semi-conductor fields.

Steve's Drop on DROP: The variety and unpredictable nature of my daily responsibilities make my position very exciting. Getting the opportunity to help resolve customer’s difficulties is greatly rewarding and the awesome group of people we have at Drop ensures every day is fun.

Favorite project: The engineering, design, and procurement of a 100 ton press that was small enough to fit on a standard office desk.
 

If I weren’t doing this, I’d be: Sports radio talk show host.
 

Strange but true fact: I once performed on-stage with Whose Line Is It Anyways (live).
