Nicholas performs geotechnical exploration and subsurface analysis on horizontal directional drilling (HDD) projects. “I’ve been taking things apart for as long as I can remember, and engineering became the obvious choice when I graduated high school. I always had the pursuit of knowledge and the curiosity for how things worked,” he says.

A recent graduate of Missouri University of Science and Technology, Nicholas says one of his favorite parts about working at GeoEngineers is the diversity of projects. “I am given the opportunity to travel to remote locations, work on unique projects, and experience a diverse range of engineering,” he says. “GeoEngineers pushes the boundaries of what is possible and embraces new technology. Everyone I have met loves what they do and are proud of the work we accomplish.”

Outside of his engineering day job, Nicholas has an interest in drones and 3D printing. He also enjoys hiking and Netflix binging.
