I am a Principal in NHC’s North Vancouver office. Simply put, I thrive on working with team members to complete water-related engineering assignments. I have more than 20 years of hydraulic design experience working on numerous projects ranging from small run-of-river hydroelectric projects to major hydroelectric developments, intake structures and pump stations, and dam spillway projects. In addition, I enjoy collaborating on dam safety assessments for water and tailings dams. I recently conducted a dam safety assessment including dam breach, inundation, and consequence analyses for Nicola Lake Dam near Merritt, BC. I also enjoy supporting our talented field crew on challenging and exciting hydroclimate field adventures. My approach focusses on team collaboration, science-based methodologies, innovation, and client satisfaction. Outside of work, I love walking or jogging, preferably near a creek, the ocean, or in the woods.
