The Principals of Pacific Legacy have worked together as a cohesive unit for 15 years, and our professional association extends more than 25 years. Our early relationship was forged as the heads of a very successful cultural resource division within an environmental consulting firm. So strong and effective was our working relationship, that we formed Pacific Legacy in 1994. Since that time, Pacific Legacy has grown into one of the largest and most successful cultural resource management firms in the western United States and Pacific.

Each of us bring to the company unparalleled expertise and experience in various aspects of archaeology and cultural resource management. Together, we comprise an unsurpassed leadership team with comprehensive skills in regulatory compliance, and archaeological method and theory.
