Dan is a licensed engineering geologist with a M.Sc. degree in geology from Western Washington University and has over 25 years of environmental and geology consulting experience.

Dan has completed over 25 environmental clean ups on contaminated sites that resulted in  “No Further Action” letters from the Department of Ecology. 

Dan has also conducted hundreds of evaluations on landslide areas, storm water infiltration and impacts, gravel deposit assessments, frequently flooded areas, debris torrent/alluvial fan hazards, and abandoned coal mine areas. 

His focus has been on thorough site inspections and evaluation of each property so that residences can be safely set back from geologically hazardous areas.

Stratum Group is a consulting firm dedicated to providing quality property assessments for geologic risk, contamination, and natural resource issues.  Our environmental science and geology expertise combined with years of work in the Pacific Northwest have given us a strong foundation in understanding the local geology, history, environmental issues, and permit requirements.
