Joe’s career spans more than 16 years of industry experience coordinating and executing complex geotechnical investigations in the telecommunications, commercial, residential, industrial, and government sectors. His expertise has earned him unique opportunities to work on many challenging projects throughout the world with his most challenging project to date taking place in the Northern Marianas Islands of Guam, Rota, and Saipan where he organized and completed five geotechnical investigations on site and without delay.
