Vice President/ Principal Engineer
BS Civil Engineering – Michigan State University
I first came to California as entry level engineer almost 20 years ago, to work for Carroll Engineering. Bryce Carroll taught me the ropes of engineering and client relationships, while grooming me to lead the company. Since becoming an owner, I strive to carry on his legacy. This includes focusing on collaboration, quality, integrity and always going the extra mile for the betterment of a project.
Our company has an extensive background in the design of educational facilities. I find school site work to be very rewarding. A successful project is about teamwork such as helping an architect master planning a school, working with the district on cost effective solutions, maintaining tight coordination with other consultants, performing constructability reviews with the contractor, and working on the nuts and bolts of the design with staff. There is always something new to learn and share.
Outside of work, I love adventure and exploring with my wife and two boys. When in Michigan, camping, boating, mountain biking and hiking are my favorite recreational activities. In other locations, mountains are preferred for snowboarding, rock climbing, or biking. California has set the bar high for beautiful challenging landscapes!
