• Project Management
• Product Development
• Customer Service
• Regulatory Compliance
• Design Engineering
• Construction Inspection
• Marketing
• Account Management
• Business Development

My education includes graduate classes in engineering management, open channel hydraulics, property law, contract law, and land use planning. I have a proven track record exhibiting excellent leadership, problem solving, and relationship building skills.

I am an Eagle Scout with membership in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Tennessee Bar Association (TBA). I frequently participate in community events.



I possess expertise in numerous areas including law, civil engineering, digital media, and photography.
