With 20 years of experience as a land survey crew chief, 4 years as a drafter and 30 years of land surveying experience overall, I reliably deliver accurate and timely results, and consider effective communication among co-workers and clients indispensable to a survey crew's ability to meet and exceed company goals.

I have worked with a variety of equipment and software. Experience with coordinate geometry and CAD includes C&G, Carlson and Civil 3D. Having passed the NCEES FS exam and gained LSIT status, I’m currently preparing for the VA LS exam.

Other experience includes computer hardware installation, troubleshooting and repair.
