With a focus on transportation engineering, he brings experience in the design and management of complex projects, ranging from large freeway interchange design to municipal roadway and pedestrian path projects. Jon specializes in illumination and roundabout design and has additional expertise in roadway and intersection design, 3D corridor modeling, traffic calming, signing, channelization, and ADA compliance.
Jon lives in Boise with his wife and two boys. He and his family are diehard Gonzaga basketball fans, and he fly fishes in his free time.
