Welcome to CDM Smith.

His projects have focused on municipal sustainability and low-carbon development, climate change adaptation, disaster resiliency, stormwater management and green infrastructure, water supply, wastewater provision, multi-modal transportation, renewable energy supply, energy demand management and watershed conservation.

What inspires you? I have been for­tu­nate to work on diverse projects through­out the United States, Asia and the Middle East. Through all of these projects, there has been a strong theme of en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity and an effort to find middle ground between economic and en­vi­ron­men­tal per­spec­tives.

Why CDM Smith? I knew shortly after joining CDM Smith that I wanted to make a career here.  The caliber of my col­leagues; the chal­leng­ing, diverse and ef­fec­tive projects; and the personal and pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ences gained from working in far-flung places across the globe keep me engaged and com­mit­ted.

How might clients describe you? I hope our clients trust me to deliver and to rep­re­sent their in­ter­ests.  I enjoy getting to know our clients, which I think yields more re­ward­ing outcomes for our work together.

What are your three non-work passions? I am cur­rently trying to learn how to surf and studying my host country’s language, Bahasa In­done­sia. I also love to read, and for the last couple of years have been reading In­done­sian fiction and non-fiction.
