BS Civil Engineering, University of California, Irvine; MS Civil Engineering, California State University, Los Angeles. Both with concentration on water and wastewater.
I am an international development consultant and a licensed civil engineer in the United States. I have 30 years of experience in engineering and management of civil infrastructures. I have held leadership roles in various local and regional government agencies and private international firms in the US, Canada and Asia. I am the president of a private consulting firm based in Seattle, Washington that specializes in engineering and management of infrastructure projects. Before starting my own consulting practice I was the head of engineering department for Redwood City, California. Previously I managed the wastewater and stormwater programs and transportation program for the cities of Los Angeles and Seattle, respectively. I have managed 5 large international development projects as Team Leader for World Bank in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Georgia and Indonesia.
My interest includes new water, urbanism and Moorish civilization. I am working to make a documentary film on the water infrastructures built in the 10th century in Andalusia, Spain. I love to hike and travel.
