Personal Interest:

My wife and I had our daughter in 2019 and we love to get into all sorts of trouble together!  Outside of work, we try to get outside for at least a little while every day, whether it be at the beach, on the mountain bike, or at the park down the street.  We love great food and I take a lot of pride in making great bbq with my decrepit old Webber!  I’ve been playing piano since I was about five, and really enjoy when my daughter starts singing along to Piano Man (she’s surprisingly good at harmonica), groovin’ to In the Mood, or jumpin’ to Linus & Lucy if it’s during the holidays.

Since coming to ALG, he has established a broad range of expertise consulting with various air, water, and waste programs.  He has served as an onsite environmental advisor to multiple facilities, including a major fuel supplier to the Southern California region where he was in charge of air, water, and waste programs at several bulk fuel and loading terminals.  In multiple occasions, he has helped clients obtain variance coverage from the South Coast AQMD Hearing Board during emergency situations and other extenuating circumstances.  He has also been heavily involved with the new Industrial General Storm water permit in California, and is actively involved in the California Storm water Quality Association (CASQA).  His work in NPDES permitting has led him to work with businesses in over fifteen different states throughout the U.S.  Besides working on exciting projects, Elliott most enjoys meeting new people and building lasting relationships with his clients.
