I’m a civil and environmental engineer and a consultant who helps public infrastructure and land development clients reduce detention requirements, reduce drainage infrastructure costs, enhance site amenities, and increase lot yield using “green” stormwater management techniques, while conforming to our region’s strict floodplain management regulations.
I help clients integrate natural resources into their developments, minimize wetland mitigation requirements, or, if required, identify and mitigate unavoidable impacts to wetland resources.
I plan, implement, and help secure funding for water conservation, water reuse, and rainwater harvesting projects. I help municipal, construction, and industrial stormwater dischargers comply with Clean Water Act requirements that require pollutants in stormwater runoff to be reduced.
I am an Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP), a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM), a Board Certified Environmental Engineer (BCEE), and a Professional Engineer in Texas and seven other states.
I serve on the board and the executive committee of the Bayou Preservation Association, whose mission is to celebrate, protect, and restore the natural richness of all our bayous and streams; and whose vision is a network of healthy bayous, streams and watersheds in the Houston region.
I started working as an environmental consultant in 1991. Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I arrived in Texas in 1998. I’m married to an Aggie-girl (also an engineer). I have two wonderful daughters, three cats, a dog, and a keen interest in technology and science-fiction.
I’m employed by R. G. Miller Engineers, Inc., a great civil and environmental engineering firm with a 50 year legacy in the Houston area, but the thoughts presented in this blog do not necessarily represent the views of my employer.
