Nic is a project engineer at NSD specializing in analysis, design, and construction oversight of river restoration, habitat enhancement, and fish passage improvement projects. With a background in fisheries biology he brings a unique perspective to the table while collaborating on projects. He looks to provide creative and scientifically-sound analysis and design support on every project. Nic’s wide range of experience includes a substantial amount of time spent in the field with “boots on the ground” observing, quantifying, and describing fish habitat and river function as well as hydrologic analysis, hydraulic modeling, engineered log jam design, bank stabilization design, fish passage design, and floodplain mapping. When he’s not working, Nic enjoys spending time with his family, running any of Bellingham’s many trails, or (in the fall) pursuing big game in the Cascades.
