2010 - 2022
Principal Engineer & Senior Project Manager
I've inspected over 1,600 structures all over North America. I led inspection teams as we travelled around and inspected infrastructure (mostly bridges), checking for defects, and creating a report for our clients. We helped clients prioritize repairs, and assisted in finding qualified contractors to perform rehabilitation.
I was the Design Manager and Engineer-of-Record for over 300 railway and pedestrian hiking trail bridges throughout Canada.
Finally, I also worked as a Project Management Analyst, where it was my job to continuously check budgets, schedules, and quality across the corporation.
2007 - 2009
Delcan Corporation, Stantec Inc., and Read Jones Christoffersen
Co-Op - Structures Division
During my summers off from university, I was fortunate to have the opportunities to work a variety of tasks for three outstanding firms listed above. My focus was mostly on site inspections and structural design, but my mentors also were gracious to involve me in proposal writing and some stages of Project Management - skills that I have honed over the years and benefit me greatly in my current day-to-day activities.
2004 - 2006
Vickory & Sons, Scansa Construction
General Labourer - Residential Construction
I've wanted to be an engineer since I played with Lego in Kindergarten, and I've always believed that if you are going to tell someone how to build things, then you better have built things yourself. So I worked summer jobs in construction to learn hands-on practical skills, that I can now apply in my engineering designs.

2022 - 2023
WSP USA Inc.
Senior Vice President, Senior Director, National Rail Bridge Leader
In simplest terms, my job was to "Grow the Rail Bridge Group."
I grew the division from one person (me) to 250 people and added $20,000,000 in revenue in my first six months, purely by doing internal networking to link our various teams together.
I was involved in engineering and project management, but my focus was on Business Development and Executive Management to grow the Rail Bridge Group to its highest potential.
