Corporate Geotechnical Engineer

Tim Gary was born and raised in Baltimore County, Maryland. From an early age he had a keen interest in math and sciences. While attending a career fair in high school, Tim attended a presentation on the design and construction of the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel. This discussion first introduced Tim to engineering and ignited his interest away from medicine and to the noble profession of civil engineering.

While pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering at the University of Maryland, Tim worked as an engineering technician with a local geotechnical engineering firm. It was during these long, hot days on excavation sites and in the materials laboratory that Tim first learned the value of a “hands on” understanding of soils and construction. Tim still draws on lessons from these early days in his career to find practical solutions to geotechnical problems.

Tim further honed his geotechnical skill set by completing his Masters of Engineering coursework. He enjoys applying his knowledge of ground improvement techniques and construction practices to finding creative and cost-effective solutions to difficult geotechnical problems.

During his 30-year career, Tim helped open two offices with a local geotechnical firm and later became a principal engineer with another firm. He also directed engineering services for a local design-build geotechnical contractor. During these years, Tim learned the value of customer service. Tim welcomes the opportunity to help meet client needs to make projects successful.

Tim is a family man and is very proud of his beautiful wife of 25 years and of their three amazing teenage daughters. He enjoys coaching (basketball, soccer, etc), and is an avid fan of his daughter’s theatrical performances. Tim is happy to represent the University of Maryland as a long-time Terps basketball fan, and reminds others to “Fear the Turtle!”
