Backcountry Structural Engineering


Backcountry Structural Engineering focuses on mountain residential and resort work in the Colorado high country.  I strive to bring a high level of reliable, cost effective solutions to all my projects.

I grew up in Breckenridge enjoying the outdoors and working miscellaneous construction jobs.   When I left in 1999 to study structural engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder, I was already planning my return.  After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Science degree from CU, I went to work for KL&A, Inc a premier design firm on the Front Range.

I have a portfolio of completed projects throughout the Western U.S. and a strong working relationship with many architectural clients.  I have attached a copy of my resume for your reference.  My experience includes a strong history in high-end mountain residential projects and resort work, which includes timber, post-tension concrete, and steel construction.  I anticipate and attack challenges early in the design, and I am technically strong and very confident in my structural engineering ability.

I have invested my time and knowledge in the premier Building Informational Modeling software, Revit Structure, to produce design documents.  Using Revit Structure, three dimensional modeling allows me to achieve a high level of coordination and detail in my drawings.

I welcome the opportunity to meet with you personally and to propose on your upcoming projects.  Please feel free to call at (970)333-1511, or contact me by e-mail at
