With more than 22 years of experience in traffic engineering, work zone traffic control, and transportation planning, Michael has worked in several transportation discipline areas, from drafting National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation to performing traffic engineering and transportation planning. Michael’s involvement with the public and stakeholders during his NEPA work has prepared him for the group dynamics associated with the development of traffic engineering solutions and their impacts.
Michael believes that stakeholders can provide beneficial insights on traffic operations and engineering, but a professional engineering team, possessing a broader and more intricate understanding of traffic engineering facets for the provision of balanced and comprehensive solutions, is needed. He sees his role as developing the engineering team to serve the stakeholders and building trust and consensus with stakeholders regarding the expertise needed for given situations.
An avid reader and sports enthusiast, Michael can be found in quiet spaces, taking in a good book or mixing it up on the basketball court.
