Craig has more than 25 years of experience in military, civil, and water resources engineering projects in both the public and private sector. In his role at IDS, Craig will lead the company in complex analyses for statewide entities involving stormwater and geographic information systems.
After serving his country as an officer in the US Army Corps of Engineers, Craig started his civilian engineering career in Missouri just after the Great Midwest Flood of 1993. He later moved to Texas, a couple years before Tropical Storm Allison, and continued his work with master drainage plans, federal flood insurance studies, and watershed planning. Craig has served as project manager for the City of Houston assessing the flood-prone areas around Houston’s Bayous. He performed his most technically advanced project working with the Texas A&M University Ocean Engineering Department to assess flood risk from riverine, local, and hurricane storm surge at the NASA Johnson Space Center. Craig was also the expert interviewed by ABC News as Hurricane Ike approached Houston.
Craig has served as the Primary Instructor for NPDES Storm Water Permit Compliance nationwide seminars including a current webinar on the subject for ASCE. Having taken experience from some of the most devastating flooding events in our country’s history, Craig believes he has stayed true to his field. Though his type of civil engineering is not often publicly noted, it has been effective and important in ensuring public safety and keeping people out of harm’s way.
