I am an avid drone pilot and photogrammetric 3D Modeler and mapper. I went to school at Brigham Young University and graduated in 2017 with a Civil Engineering Degree with a focus on Geotechnical Engineering. During that time, I researched UAV Applications in Civil Engineering and joined the Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS). Latter I led the ROAM (Research in Optimized Aerial Modeling) Team and obtained a Master’s degree in the subject. I have been on many UAV projects since I got my FAA 107 license in 2017. Some of these jobs include Earthquake Reconnaissance and city devastation modeling at Pescara del Tronto, Italy and Anchorage, Alaska. Currently, I work for the Burau of Reclamation as Dam inspector where I use drones to model various Federal Dam. I really enjoy what I do and hope to be able to do even more.
If you enjoy 3D Models please check out the BYU’s Gallery where I had the privilege to participate in and construct many of the models between 2016 and 2020.
