Scot is a managing senior principal of the water practice for Arizona and oversees our Phoenix office. With 30 years of experience in water resources, his expertise is in drainage master plans and studies, watercourse master plans, flood warning plans, dam modifications, and bank stabilization.
Nothing is more satisfying to Scot than a successfully implemented project that benefits the community. A few good examples are when he served as project manager on Maricopa County's first watercourse master plan where non-structural floodplain management was successfully implemented along the New River, and The El Rio Watercourse Master Plan which is proposed to be an economic engine for community partners and preservation of a riparian river environment that is unique to this urbanizing area.
Scot enjoys golf and sees it replicating both life and work- sometimes challenging and sometimes rewarding. The key to all is to think positive, be creative, keep moving forward, and resolve the challenges.
