Chris is involved with a wide range of specialties at GeoEngineers. He spends most of his time in the field collecting and analyzing soil samples or installing monitoring wells and gathering data from them. When he is not in the field, he is in the lab logging and managing soil samples. “The variety of work is so broad; I often don’t know what the next day holds,” he says.

In addition to having great variety in his work, Chris also enjoys the culture of GeoEngineers. “The personnel who surround me here are more like family than co-workers. They are very encouraging and helpful in so many ways. We have fun while getting the job done,” Chris says.

Chris carries his love of the outdoors into his personal life. As an avid hunter and fisherman, you can find often find him in a duck blind, a deer stand, training the bird dogs, stalking a spring gobbler or sitting in a boat trying to hook a monster lunker.
