Principal, River Engineer

I was born and raised in Seattle and attended the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!) and University of British Columbia. I’ve lived and worked in British Columbia for more than 20 years now and consider it my home. BC is a great place to work as a river engineer – beautiful yet challenging. Recent projects I’ve worked on are the BC Bridge Scour Evaluation Program and the Highway 29 Relocation Project. I’ve worked on over 800 bridge and culvert crossings so far in my career; I’m passionate about the work and hope to continue serving clients in this sector for another 20 years. Outside of work, I enjoy cycling and skiing, but really, it’s all about raising my kids at this stage of my life, and I love it!
