He is a professional engineer in 45 states. He holds a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama.
He regularly lectures around the world on topics ranging from vibration isolation, seismic and wind restraint of mechanical systems to the use of elastomeric expansion joints for piping in seismic applications. He was a member of a team of engineers that inspected numerous buildings after the Loma Prieta and Northridge earthquakes. He has been a featured speaker at the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) and ASHRAE National Conventions numerous times.
He is a past chairman of ASHRAE’s Technical Committee TC-2.7, “Seismic and Wind Restraint Design.” He is currently the chairman of ASHRAE Standards Committee SPC 171P, “Method of Test of Seismic Restraints for HVAC & R Equipment.” He is currently ASHRAE’s liaison to the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Wind Load Task Group. He is a member of the Standards Committee for ASHRAE.
He is a member of the “Hanging and Bracing of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems,” technical committee for the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) NFPA-13.
