There is nothing like the joy of seeing a building in construction or completed, and knowing that you played a critical role in bringing that to fruition. Very few professions can deliver that sort of tangible satisfaction."

Mark began his structural engineering career with a small firm in Seattle in 1985. After working for three firms around Seattle and Bellevue, Mark joined DCI in 1998 and moved to Spokane to open one of our first branch offices. Mark grew that office to about 60 total staff, while also becoming president of DCI in 2007. He stepped down as President/CEO in 2021, and now focuses his time in our downtown Los Angeles office that he opened in 2016.

What is your dream project location?
I’ve always loved working in Hawaii, you can't beat the site visits!

What would you name an engineering superhero?
Constructo! Or maybe the Man of Steel!

What is your favorite thing about the DCI work environment?
The shared commitment to NEVER letting down our clients.
