As a senior geotechnical engineer in our Tacoma office, Christopher manages a variety of civil engineering projects—from transportation infrastructure to real estate development. He helps us investigate and understand soil and groundwater conditions at our sites and steers our clients and teams toward success.

“I like that you have to be a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ as a geotechnical engineer,” Christopher says. “We’re ready to engage a variety of geotechnical problems and develop practical solutions.”

Christopher joined GeoEngineers after finishing his civil engineering graduate degree in 2014, looking for new challenges and opportunities to learn. His technical curiosity and love of problem-solving show up in Christopher’s personal interests as well.

“I am a ‘gearhead’ and into off-road recreation whether it is overlanding or wheeling some challenging trail,” Christopher says.

Christopher enjoys modifying trucks to take out on the trails. If he’s not welding or working on a truck, you might catch Christopher watching college football.
