David works on the development of proposals, leads and manages technical analyses, and supervises a team of engineers in our Water Resources group. His background is mostly in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling—working on system-wide models for sewers—but he’s also been involved in open-channel flow and overland 2D modeling through FEMA, dam breach, and 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. In these cities, that will result in improved economic vitality and growth—no longer deterred by high flood-insurance premiums in their downtown area. He’s also worked on the Mid-Breton Sediment Diversion project along the Louisiana coastline, helping design one of the largest restoration projects in the world.
Outside of work, David enjoys spending time with his wife, three daughters, and their church community.
