About Us

Pali-Consulting was started out of my more than 25 years of geotechnical work in the Pacific Northwest and Hawaiian Islands.  The name Pali pays homage to the steep cliffs forming much of the Hawaiian Islands, the Mountains of the Pacific Northwest and of my love and experience in geotechnical consulting.  I leverage this passion and experience to meet your goals in a way that is safe, practical and respectful of the land.  I look forward to working with you.  

Tim Blackwood, President
