A recognized expert in environmental geochemistry and remediation, Angus’s career has evolved steadily and naturally. He inherited his intense curiosity and problem-solving ability from his father, a 25-year CIA veteran, and his passionate commitment to protecting environmental resources is a deep-rooted value after growing up near the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil—the most biodiverse and over-exploited region in the world.
At nine, Angus made baking soda and vinegar rockets. By 26, with his doctorate complete, he conducted research for in-situ soil treatment at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for NASA, his first of several NASA-related projects. As an academic, Angus researches emerging contaminants and develops new remediation strategies. As a client advocate, he evaluates long-term liability and prioritizes risk, determines appropriate end-points for remediation, and provides agency representation.
His future? Angus plans to continue doing what he does best—cleaning up mankind’s nastiest messes.
