Profile Information

Surveyor Bio:
Staff Sergeant in Vermont National Guard Mountain Recon Platoon.
Married, father of three girls. I started surveying for a private company in 83, graduated from The Land Surveying Trianing Center in Tempe AZ in 85. Joined the DOT in Arizona in 85 on a photogrametric crew, moved To CT in 87 where I surveyed for 6 years in Meets and Bounds. Moved back to AZ and worked for a couple of engineering firms for six-years. Now my family and I are back on the east coast for good. Sick of the desert heat--love the snow!
I spent 8 years in the Army, 3 years active duty in a RECON platoon working with land navigation and 5 years in the Arizona national guard in a military police unit. I spent January 1980 in Fairbanks Alaska. I climbed Mt. Rainier in Washington state and surveyed some of the Arizona desert. I surveyed a single planned subdivision, for an A.L.T.A. of 82,600 units, 24,600 acres or 39 sq. miles. Using Trimble GPS 5800 we finished it in 2 weeks with 2 crews.
Location
Vermont
I have experience with the following
Boundries, Topos, ALTAs, Construction, Hydrolic, Condo conversions.
FOOTSTEPS OF SURVEYOR
It has been declared that all the rules of law adopted for guidance in locating boundary lines have been to the end that the steps of the surveyor who originally projected the lines on the ground may be retraced as nearly as possible; furthermore, that in determining the location of a survey, the fundamental principle is that it is to be located where the surveyor ran it. Any call, it has been said, may be disregarded, in order to ascertain the footsteps of the surveyor is establishing the boundary of the tract attempted to be marked out on the land; and the conditions and circumstances surrounding the location should be taken into consideration to determine the surveyor's intent. Volume11 of CORPUS JURISPRUDENCE SECUNDUM "BONDS to BRIDGES" under topic 'Boundaries'

17 years

Inspiring Quotation for Surveyors

Posted on June 28, 2008 at 5:33pm 1 Comment

"The problems of boundary lie at the foundation of all surveying, for one must know where a line is before he can measure it, and the solution of these problems calls for the same powers of accurate observation and of consecutive and logical thought that are demanded for successful work in any branch of modern science. It is needless to say that the successful surveyor must be accurate in his instrument work and in his computation; yet, if he would really succeed, he must go beyond this. He… Read more →
