Rich began his engineering career in the mining industry, where his roles included project management of the installation of new process equipment lines, process line modifications, machine optimization, and management of contractor work forces on large capital projects. It was during those experiences that he realized that one of the most rewarded aspects of the work was digging into the details, evaluating the facts, and getting to the root cause of a problem.
What would often appear to be a complex problem with no immediate solution, could be solved by systematically evaluating each individual component and turning that large seemingly unsolvable problem into small manageable solutions, until the ultimate fix would emerge. After seven years, he was able to obtain his Professional Engineer license in the State of South Carolina, while discovering his passion for forensic engineering consulting work. Rich has actively consulted for insurance companies, private companies, legal clients, and individuals for over 10 years, including providing testimony in multiple trials. Living near Orlando, Florida, he is centrally located within the state and able to provide resolution for engineering questions throughout Florida, as well as the contiguous States, the southeastern region, and the Caribbean islands.
