“I take my work very seriously, but not myself. As a good friend once said, “Obviously we have some levity.” I aim to bring not only beautiful solutions but also joy to every collaboration.”
Dan grew up touring construction sites after hours with his dad and brother, only getting caught once or twice. His favorite part of structural engineering—aside from finding clients and making them friends—is visiting his project sites without risking arrest.
Dan received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a Master of Science in Structural Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He is a licensed Structural Engineer in Hawaii, Illinois and Oklahoma and a licensed professional engineer in North Carolina and Georgia.
Dan has served as the project engineer for a wide variety of building types including multifamily, commercial, education and government projects, both nationally and internationally.
