Environmental science and engineering was just beginning to gain steam as an industry when I was under the Civil Engineering program at Georgia Institute of Technology. During my last year in college, one of my professors took me under his wing to assist with several research projects in the environmental field.

I spent much of my childhood working with my father and learning to plan things, build things, fix things, and generally work with my hands. That entailed major and minor car maintenance, home repairs, cabinet building, and improving the landscaping around our home. My dad was an engineer and I thought what he did was fun and rewarding. It seemed like a logical path for me to follow.

Environmental science and engineering was just beginning to gain steam as an industry when I was under the Civil Engineering program at Georgia Institute of Technology. During my last year in college, one of my professors took me under his wing to assist with several research projects in the environmental field. He recommended me as a candidate to (at the time) the largest Environmental Engineering firm in the country. I began my career there, and bounced between consulting and industry until joining Trihydro in 2009.

Trihydro has a unique culture different than any I’ve seen before; and a successful 33-year growth story to match. Our people are genuine, and truly embody the work hard/play hard theme. Our senior leadership is also a collegial group that values the success of our employees as much as we value the success of our projects. I’m excited to be in Wyoming to take an active role in the coming years’ successes.

Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, and cooking fine meals. I’m an avid triathlete, mountain biker, and general lover of the outdoors. I’m also an accomplished woodworker with many completed commissioned pieces scattered in homes/businesses of friends and customers throughout the southeast.

Our People Matter

Trihydro’s employees are its most valuable assets. We invest in employee development—and encourage an open, team-oriented, informal atmosphere that fosters employee well-being.

We are a team that builds strong client relationships founded on hard work and integrity. We seek talented, motivated professionals committed to doing the same.
