His clients include local municipalities, civil engineering firms, development companies and state agencies. An accomplished project manager, Steve currently manages GeoEngineers’ on-call contracts with Pierce County, King County and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Steve loves to golf, and has been instrumental in ongoing work on the Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington, where the U.S. Open Golf Tournament will be held in 2015. This project involved many of Steve’s practice areas, including slope stability analysis, subsurface exploration, stormwater infiltration and geotechnical design services for various course structures.
