Michael performs environmental investigations, characterizes subsurface soil and water conditions, and helps restore damaged properties as a member of our Portland environmental team. He helps our clients understand potential risks with Phase 1 ESAs and protects human health through asbestos inspections on construction materials like culverts, storm drains, and bridges. Thanks to Michael’s work, our clients can better understand environmental risks, and mitigate them.

“I enjoy contributing to each phase of a project—from site investigation and sampling to characterizing contamination and planning remedial actions,” Michael says. “It is extremely rewarding to be part of the whole process and know that our efforts are helping to shape a cleaner and healthier world for future generations.”

Before joining GeoEngineers, Michael spent time as an environmental field technician. He honed his talents for subsurface characterization investigating and remediating contaminated soil and groundwater, but eventually Michael started looking for ways to expand his expertise even further. That search eventually brought Michael to GeoEngineers, where his environmental experience is the perfect complement to his new geotechnical and environmental responsibilities. His drive to learn, attention to detail, and friendly attitude are an asset to each of his projects.

“I was looking for the opportunity to continue learning and working with soil in a new perspective,” Michael says. “I really like all my coworkers and the comradery I feel here at GeoEngineers.”

In his free time, Michael likes to stay active. Depending on the season, you might catch Michael camping in the Oregon woods, skateboarding, snowboarding or surfing.
