Smartsheet is the worldâs leading SaaS platform for managing and automating collaborative work.
I grew up on the Lake Erie waterfront at my Dad's marina/boat yard and am now an MIT-trained naval architect with a passion for the “big picture” challenges faced by the working waterfront. My background includes more than 30 years of planning, design, and construction of waterfront facilities, vessels, and terminals. Building on my master’s degree in Coastal Zone Management from the University of Washington, I have managed numerous waterfront planning and design projects, ranging from single vessel education/tour services to 15-vessel high-speed ferry systems. My recent experience includes the design of the world’s longest cable ferry system in British Columbia, a new award-winning, multi-modal ferry terminal in Mukilteo, WA, and a number of ferry planning, operations, and maintenance studies on both the East and West Coasts. I am also the board president of Northwest Seaport, a maritime heritage and workforce development non-profit organization in Seattle.
