The Point of Beginning

Red Sands Geomatics is a compilation of the innumerable efforts of teachers, coaches, parents, employers, and friends that I have interacted with in my life. I run and operate this business because of them. I am a strong believer in paying it forward as there are acts of service and kindness that can never be repaid.

My experience in land surveying began in 2015. I graduated as the Valedictorian from Utah Valley University with a bachelor’s degree in Geomatics in 2019. I obtained my Professional Land Surveying license in 2021 and started Red Sands Geomatics, LLC in 2023.  

While at UVU, I served as the Geomatics president and competed at the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) student competitions. One of the highlights of my college years was traveling with UVU to survey, scan, explore, and document the active archeological site Beit Lehi in Israel. If I could be an archeological surveyor full-time I would!

Currently licensed in Utah and Arizona and am member of the Utah Council of Land Surveyors.

I am extremely passionate about the outdoors and spend my free time with my family out-and-about every chance I get. I love land surveying and what it is evolving into with the advancement of scanning technology and drones. It is truly incredible what can be accomplished with today's technology!
