Since I was a young kid, I have maintained a strong interest in how buildings are put together, and still dream today of building my own home. Applying my background in civil and structural engineering to understand the story of a home, assess the apparent issues, and make practical recommendations to our clients is really what I enjoy during the foundation and drainage inspection process. I have completed hundreds of foundation and drainage inspections at BEAR and prior to this worked for 8 years as a structural engineer at high-end consultancies (Degenkolb). Some of the projects I am most proud of include the seismic retrofit of a high rise hotel in downtown San Francisco, the steel erection engineering for one of the largest stadiums in the NFL, and the structural assessment of heavy timber roof trusses at historic buildings in Washington D.C and Maryland. I am a licensed professional engineer (PE) and structural engineer (SE) in the State of California, and have degrees in Civil Engineering (B.S.) and Structural Engineering (M.Sc.).
