“As project engineer and technical lead for our projects, my goal on every job is to provide unique and innovative solutions to meet the needs of our clients. I believe in fostering close interactions and open communication between operators and engineers throughout project planning, design, construction and startup. In my experience, this has eased the transition to the operation of new and improved equipment and facilities. I make certain that every detail is discussed, from the choice of the equipment manufacturers of used, to the placement of valves, and more. Because of this, staff walking into a new or updated facility or system are already familiar with new their assets due to our fluid dialog.”
