Doug may live in the desert, but the work he does certainly isn’t dry. A principal in our Las Vegas office, he manages a structural engineering design team made up of three engineers and a BIM designer. Together, they design environmental and building structures.
Growing up, Doug’s father was a masonry contractor who put him to work as soon as he was old enough to help. This led him to working in construction for many years and helped him develop an understanding of field issues and some of the problems contractors face during construction on a daily basis. Today, Doug is committed to clear and concise communication and has been known for his ability to explain and teach engineering concepts to people that aren’t engineers—including students at UNLV. He’s served as an adjunct professor for the past 15 years, teaching engineering courses in concrete, steel, and wood design.
In his spare time, Doug enjoys working on do-it-yourself home improvement projects—he likes the idea of saving money while improving his house. On the weekends, he can often be found watching basketball and football with his wife and friends, cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes, UNLV Rebels, and the Nevada Wolfpack.
