I have been practicing Civil and Geotechnical Engineering for over 35 years. During this time, I have been involved in numerous interdisciplinary engineering projects throughout the United States. I have been responsible for the planning, coordination, and supervision of complete investigations including field exploration, instrumentation, laboratory testing, engineering analysis and design, report preparation, and construction supervision. I have performed investigation and design projects for public works, transportation projects, private developments, municipal landfills and industrial facilities. I recently was part of the Geotechnical Engineering team for the construction of the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal Lake Borgne Surge Barrier Project in New Orleans, Louisiana. This was the largest design-build contract ever let by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project is a key feature in the Corps efforts to provide 100-year flood protection to the New Orleans Area.
I have served as an expert witness on dozens of litigation projects involving slope stability, erosion, construction methods and settlement. I am a registered Civil and Geotechnical Engineer in the State of California, Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a Diplomate in Geotechnical Engineering. In addition, I am also a registered Professional Engineer in Nevada, Oregon, Arizona, Washington and Louisiana. I am a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sedimentation Control (CPESC) a Certified Professional in Storm Water Quality (CPSWQ), and a Qualified Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan Developer (QSD) in California.
