With over 20 years of experience in the industry, our Senior Project Manager Dirk, heads the Quality Assurance process for Magellan. Since joining the Magellan team in 2004, Dirk has completed over 120 projects. When asked about his favorite aspect of this industry, Dirk said “I love the balance of art and science in architecture. The emotional and interpretive combined with the specifics of engineering and the bounds of gravity with real world conditions, all while seeking to improve the built environment and fulfill a client’s vision.  To walk through this process during design, to shepherd a project through permits, budgets and logistical challenges, and to then watch a structure take shape and become a real thing is very gratifying for me.  I am grateful to have found a place in this industry.”

In his spare time, Dirk enjoys hiking with his dog and spending time with his kids. He also enjoys traveling and when asked what his dream vacation would be, he says an African Safari!
