Senior Principal 355-5656
I am the son of a brick mason, and growing up in the construction industry attracted me to structural engineering at an early age. I love finding creative solutions to both complex and common problems. I derive a lot of personal satisfaction in finding ways to save owners money and enabling the architect’s designs to become an affordable reality.
