Field Geologist in Baltimore, Maryland

I am currently working as a Field Geologist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District. My reporting station is located at Fort McHenry on the Baltimore Harbor, where the Star Spangled Banner was inspired and written during the War of 1812. One of my favorite aspects of East Coast living is the connection to our nation's history and culture.

I travel approximately 75-100% of the time, and I work on a broad range of geotechnical and environmental projects throughout the North Atlantic Region. Most recently, I have been working on a variety of environmental site investigations in Upstate New York. I am greatly enjoying the opportunity to travel and explore the East Coast!

The CWU Geology Department has been a significant part of my personal and professional journey. I am deeply thankful for the sense of community and camaraderie, as well as the opportunity to study geology in such a beautiful part of the country. Thank you to the excellent faculty and staff, as well as the many friends and colleagues I have met along the way.
