My mission is to provide engineering geologic investigations for a variety of construction projects, responding to the needs and schedule of the client. I use innovative techniques to identify potential geologic hazards and to effectively communicate conditions, risks, and alternatives to the client.  I provide forensic investigations of landslide and fault related distress and expert witness services.  I have been the principal investigative geologist on hundreds of construction projects and distressed properties for over 25 years.  I named the Blossom Hill fault and documented evidence of recent movement on this thrust fault in the Los Gatos hills.
