On a personal note

I love being an engineer. There are very few professions where you have such great opportunities to spend your time and energy creatively engaged in providing the essential needs of clean safe water and sanitation. My entire career has been focused on helping water and wastewater systems in developing the most basic building blocks of civilization. I am convinced that some of the best and hardest working people out there spend their days (and sometimes their nights) making sure that the water keeps flowing.

Prior to joining WSC, I was the Utilities/Capital Projects Manager for the City of Morro Bay. I concurrently managed the City’s water system and wastewater collections system while overseeing delivery of all of capital projects. I know well the challenges and struggles that systems have to meet, such as meeting stringent regulatory requirements with constrained resources and a multitude of competing priorities. The best solutions are those that consider the needs of the operational staff and make their jobs easier.

I am a lifelong learner with a broad background having worked for decades in the construction trades and experience designing and delivering projects all over the world. If you ever need a hand, or a listening ear to help to help with any water- or wastewater-related effort, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

When I am not working, I have a great time enjoying the natural beauty and many recreational activities provided by the Central Coast of California with my beautiful wife and three wonderful boys.
