Expertise DescriptionI am a goal-oriented and budget-conscious construction and engineering professional offering more than 25 years of experience within the construction industry heading diverse, multimillion-dollar projects to successful completion. I have been involved in hundreds of projects with a total dollar value exceeding $1 billion with experience in all facets of development from initial feasibility through real estate, design development, construction, warranty period, and the operations and maintenance life-cycle. I have been an estimator, project manager, construction manager, Owner’s representative, General Contractor, consultant, and A/E’s representative on projects including condominiums, hospitals, schools, court houses, restaurants, and office buildings to name a few. I also have experience in Federal Government projects, both military and civil works, some of which are considered “mega” projects (exceeding $100 million in value). Additionally, I have experience in residential development including subdivision development and house construction. I have spent over 5 years providing consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony as a construction engineering expert witness.
Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes work with Plaintiff’s attorneys on a variety of construction claims related to roof defects, mold infestation, schedule delays, and other construction issues that went to either arbitration or litigation.
My consulting experience includes working with multiple clients that have had a need for expertise in navigating the construction and development process. I have also worked as a consultant with businesses and individuals in the areas of strategic planning, leadership, and personal development.

I have been a part-time University instructor since 2011, taught review courses for the PE (professional engineer) exam, and delivered continuing education to licensed architects and engineers for more than one year.
