Ace The PE Logo by My 9 Year Old

Hi, I am your resident Professional Engineer, the author of this site,  and also the humble host of “Ace the PE” podcast.  I am a practicing Professional Engineer in South Carolina, and am self-employed at my engineering business.  I have taken and passed both the Civil PE exam, and the Structural I PE Exam.  On a personal note; I am a Christian, with a wife and five kids that I love.  One of my kids even helped me with the logo design (right).  What do you think?  I also enjoy running and keeping fit.  Once you pass the PE Exam, you may want to head over to my running site as well ;)


The goal and mission of this site is simple – to help you pass the PE Exam.
