Peter is a native of British Columbia, holds a Geological Engineering degree from the University of British Columbia with over 20 years of experience within the earth science and engineering fields. His early days were spent primarily in the forest and mining sectors both within the corporate and consulting sectors. Starting in 2006, Peter rounded out this experience with a 7 year stint as a Regional Geotechnical Engineer for the Ministry of Transportation in BC.
Through the years Peter has been involved with hundreds of projects that ranged from routine maintenance to multi million-dollar legacy and capital works projects. Many of these projects were scattered across the globe and ranged from African deserts to the ice of Antarctica. His earlier years focused on the natural hazard side of geotechnical engineering. These hazards included landslides, slope stability and rock fall challenges. As his career progressed, he became more interested in the structural side of engineering. This led him to complete his Masters of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan, gained him the BC Premiers Award for Innovation and ultimately this role with GeoStabilization. Peter now resides on Vancouver Island with his wife and 3 young boys.
In the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States a rockslide occurred that presented a variety of problems for the state’s Department of Transportation (DOT).
