While the commander of the USACE Charleston District, he led the District to expand and deepen the Charleston Harbor, support military and interagency clients across the United States, and balance responsible development and environmental stewardship throughout South Carolina.

I enjoy leveraging my past experiences with the Army to provide innovative design solutions and client focused support.
