A native of Seattle, I graduated from Vashon High School. I began my land surveying career as a part-time summer job in the late 1960’s, while attending college. After completing my college degrees (WWU) and military service (US Army), I returned to land surveying as a full-time occupation in the late 1970’s.
I became licensed as a Professional Land Surveyor (Certificate No. 18903) in 1980. I keep abreast of current land surveying trends and practices through active participation in continuing education opportunities, professional meetings, and conventions.
