Doug founded Atlas Geotechnical in 2004 when he decided to leave the comforts of corporate engineering firms, and the continental US, to live on Maui. Working throughout the Pacific, he confirmed that his purposeful approach is exceptionally effective on waterfront structures, industrial facilities, neglected dams, deep excavations, and heavy machine foundations. He worked on projects in Palau, Diego Garcia, Guam, Majuro, and across the Hawaiian islands. Returning to the mainland in 2009, Doug focused on working for Contractors and Operators and tackling the most challenging problems. At Atlas Geotechnical, Doug has the job that he wished for when he was 6: he plays in the dirt with giant trucks and cranes, goes on adventures to far-flung places, and enjoys the camaraderie of a great group of like-minded engineers.
