I have 14 years of experience, and specialize in the field of engineering with specific knowledge in the areas of traffic operations, concurrency and environmental permitting. I have published on such topics as land use and transportation, transportation permitting and transportation safety. I have testified 12 times on topics such as traffic operations, land use and transportation and concurrency. I am one of only a few people in the country to obtain a doctorate degree in engineering (Ph.D), practice as a civil engineer (P.E.), and also practice as a certified land use planner (AICP).
