Director of Engineering
Water, as a resource and as a force in nature, has been a central element of my work. I enjoy the opportunity to utilize science, engineering, and mathematics to solve environmental problems. My field allows me to develop innovative and practical ways to address environmental challenges while complying with the ever-changing environmental regulations. I continually strive to make contributions towards the goal of achieving environmentally sustainable communities. I relish time with my family, outdoor adventures, and knowing my continued efforts contribute to wildlife conservation.
Director of Planning
I entered the environmental and urban planning field because land use development sets the foundation of safe and sustainable communities for families of all types and income levels. I wanted to provide well designed communities for all residents, and shopping centers that allowed residents to obtain goods and services necessary to raise their families. I cherish the ability to mold and shape areas of southern California while protecting the natural environment and ensuring that all species can live symbiotically. In today's contemporary environment, creating a sustainable project that is legally and adequately protected, is a daily focus of mine. As a family man, my goal is to achieve affordable and environmentally sustainability homes of all shapes and sizes to create a better world for everyone throughout southern California.

Director of Environmental Services
When I was younger, I was eager to have the opportunity to meld my creative and analytical skills to design projects that would be functional, while having minimal impact on the environment. I love the diversity of applications and projects that I have been involved with, and the ever-evolving solutions that are being developed to lessen the impact of development on both the natural environment, and to existing communities. I enjoy working at CASC because they have provided me with the flexibility to work independently, or collaborate with experts within the company and with partnering organizations. I take pleasure in improving my own personal environment including home improvement and landscaping projects; and I hope to leave a legacy of developing rational and effective solutions to environmental challenges.
Landscape Architect & NPDES Compliance
As a freshman at LSU, I met a student who was majoring in Landscape Architecture, (a field I had never heard of). When he saw some of my sketches he suggested I speak with the Head of the Department, Mr. Robert “Doc” Reich. We hit it off, and once I had taken the introductory classes (which Doc taught), I knew Landscape Architecture was the major for me. Landscape Architecture allows you to blend design, nature, art, and technology together to create environments that people live, work, and play in. My goal is to create designs that people appreciate and enjoy, while simultaneously adding value to their lives. As a father, and former Boy Scout Troop Leader, I recognize the importance of having beautiful outdoor parks and sports fields that allow families the time to come together and bond, while creating life long memories.
Senior Project Manager
Senior Project Manager
When I was growing up, I was captivated by the stories my father used to tell me about my grandfather (who was a civil engineer). In addition, bridges always seemed to peak my fascination. As a civil engineer, part of my job is working in the office, and working out in the field. I get to enjoy the rain, hiking around flat and hilly areas, seeing unusual critters which you normally would not get to experience as part of your everyday life, and coordinating with clients and agencies. It is a rewarding feeling to see projects you have worked on, be transformed from a raw piece of land to a finished product with buildings, homes, parks, etc. While computers have changed the world, we still need to make sure that the knowledge base is there to understand what the computers are telling us. I hope to inspire and pass on information to future generations, just as my father did with me.
My childhood was spent helping my father, who was a journeyman carpenter, with projects around our home and property. He is extremely skilled with his hands, and taught me to work with steel, wood, concrete, plumbing, and electricity. As a result, I developed an infatuation with construction, and when it came time to research careers in high school, my father encouraged me to become an engineer and design projects myself. The skills I’ve obtained throughout my career have proved invaluable in my home life. Civil Engineering has allowed me to complete my own home and property improvement projects from start to finish. I aspire to achieve more experience as a Project Manager, as well as continue to develop my business skills. CASC provides me with a comfortable work environment and I appreciate the “with responsibility comes flexibility” management style. As a ranch owner, at times, my ranch demands my immediate attention and CASC is nothing short of supportive, allowing me to work flexible hours or even remotely to accommodate my obligations at home.
Executive Assistant & Marketing
As a kid, I was always drawn to Civil Engineering. I would build Legos and other science projects. I was inspired by my Dad, grandpa, uncle, and cousins who were all Civil Engineers, so when the opportunity to intern as CASC arose, I took it. I enjoy solving problems, whether it is an issue while out in the field or trying to find the best technique for grading a Site in Auto CAD. I also enjoy experimenting with drones and finding ways to implement that technology into our current projects. I hope to achieve my PE in Civil Engineering, as well as expanding CASC’s drone technology division. In my spare time, I am always doing something outdoors, whether it is hiking, mountain biking, or snowboarding. Whenever the opportunity arises, I try to fly drones on the weekend and make videos of the footage. I love that something that started as my hobby, has turned into a beneficial service that CASC can now provide our clients.
As a child, my mom never let me play in the dirt; so, as an adult, I decided to go into geology because I was encouraged to play with dirt. I stumbled into the water quality field during my work ventures and thesis development. I fell in love with the dynamic work environments because every site is different, and has its own problems and requires its own problem solving. I enjoy being outdoors, and there is nothing like experiencing the different climate changes. My truck is always fully stocked with varying field clothing changes to help me battle the elements. I endeavor to continue to learn, both as an individual and professionally. The continued changes in requirements encourages me to stay educated and be in the know (and there is so much information out there). Being able to pass on tips in field to my clients, helps me to be the best in my profession.
Environmental Project Manager
I entered the engineering field because I appreciated the challenges and wide range of different paths I could choose from. I enjoy facing those challenges head on and the working environment and flexibility that CASC provides. I hope to achieve the experience I need to grow as a professional engineer. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and driving around town.
