Brandon is a Regional Director in GeoStabilization’s Mountain and Pacific Regions. He graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in December of 2012 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering and a focus in Geotechnical Engineering & Construction Management. Brandon began his professional career as a Civil Engineering Intern with an international mining company in 2010, moving into a full-time position upon graduation in 2012. As a civil engineer, he gained valuable experience leading the design, construction, and operation of active upstream tailings facilities; as well as acting as the company’s Project Manager for medium to large scale civil construction projects. He joined GeoStabilization in September 2015 as a Project Manager working on a wide variety of stabilization projects in six different states, including temporary micropile shoring systems, GCS Walls, soil nail walls, and rockfall mitigation.
In the 1970s, a massive rockslide buried Interstate 81 in Montgomery County, VA while it was being constructed. The mountain of debris took months to clear. More recently, VDOT engineers and geologists noticed active movement near the historic slide, and proactively began an emergency rock slope mitigation effort.
