Michael is an industry leader in transportation engineering with a knack for guiding business operations. He is no stranger to managing large, multidisciplinary planning and engineering transportation projects for cities, counties, and state departments across the Western United States. He now leverages this depth of experience to lead Murraysmith’s transportation group. His strategy is to marry a well-established vision for a successful project with a highly communicative, interdisciplinary team. This results in a single-minded drive to provide accurate, cost-effective planning and design documents, which is key to a successful project.


A Kalama, Washington, native, Michael is an avid outdoorsman who can be found exploring the state by foot, ski, bike, and ATV. Always eager for a challenge, he also enjoys running half marathons with his kids.

How does great engineering work? “Great Engineering” is the process of successfully executing a shared project vision with the client based upon years of trust built from consistent project delivery by talented design teams will an uncommon commitment to quality, service, and sense of community.
