Based in our Nanaimo, BC office, I provide technical support and manage projects across British Columbia. As a geomorphologist, I focus on observing, interpreting, and assessing channel and coastal processes to understand how these processes can influence flooding and erosion issues. I was formerly the Public Works Manager for a small community in coastal BC, and my local government experience offers a unique perspective in working with clients and regulatory agencies. My recent projects have involved flood and erosion hazard assessment, and mitigation planning and implementation. When not working, I enjoy hiking, kayaking, swimming, diving, and the occasional surf trip.
