As a native to Beaufort County, I want future generations to be able to enjoy all the things about the local rivers and the wide open spaces that are so familiar to the Lowcountry. I enjoy the challenge of using engineering principles with a project site’s natural conditions to create a unique product. As a Designer at Ward Edwards Engineering, I have the privilege to do this in the community where I grew up.

I earned a BS in Civil Engineering from The Citadel and a Masters from Clemson University in Applied Fluid Mechanics.  Before joining Ward Edwards Engineering, I had the opportunity to make differences in our community with water resources projects while working in the Stormwater Management Division at the Town of Bluffton.  My experiences taught me how to manage the delicate balance between economic development and environmental sustainability.  My wife and I both cannot imagine a better place to live, work, or raise a family. In our spare time we enjoy being on the local waterways and taking advantage of all the Lowcountry has to offer.
