David leads and manages technical analyses, works on the development of proposals, , and supervises a team of engineers in our Water Resources group. His background is mostly in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling—working on projects consisting of system-wide network modeling for municipalities, open-channel flow, breach, and overland 2D modeling for agencies like FEMA, and many other flood-risk studies.
When it comes to flood mitigation projects, David has helped communities like Findlay and Sharonville, Ohio, analyze improvements and find cost-effective solutions that reduce their risk of flooding. These projects will improve economic vitality and encourage growth, which had been deterred by high flood insurance premiums in their downtown areas. He’s also worked on large civil-design projects like the Mid-Breton Sediment Diversion on the Mississippi River, helping design one of the largest restoration projects in the world.
Outside of work, David enjoys spending time with his wife, four daughters, and their church community.
