Lot of Work, Little Playtime

Born and raised in The Woodlands, Texas, Dan was destined to be a Land Surveyor. As a 3rd generation surveyor, and beginning when he was old enough to carry a 5-gallon bucket filled with a steel tape, chaining pins, and a plumb bob, he would work every summer break throughout grade school with his father Robert. After graduating from high school, Dan entered Texas A & M on a pole-vaulting scholarship while studying Civil Engineering. Three years later, he enrolled in the College of Technology (Land Surveying & Mapping program) at the University of Houston where he worked full-time with his father at Pinnell Survey, Inc., while attending class full-time in the evenings. Dan completed his college career in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Technology (Land Surveying) and minor in AutoCAD. He immediately began intense studying for the state board exam and passed in the Fall of 1999. He went on to obtain registration in Oklahoma two years later. Now, co-owner and president of The Pinnell Group, LLC and Bayou City Land Surveying, with 40 years of Surveying experience, 18 years as a professional, Dan is determined to serve the public for years to come.

Michael was born in Cyril, Oklahoma and worked in the communication field for many years.  In 2007, Michael moved to The Woodlands in search of a long lasting career opportunity.  After 2 months of searching, he made his choice to become a Land Surveyor and was hired by The Pinnell Group, LLC in the fall of 2007.  Michael is currently director of platting department, prepares CAD drawings with Autodesk Civil 3d, performs mathematical calculations, and conducts courthouse deed research.  He is also an experienced Junior Crew Chief.

Born in the small town of Wakefield, Nebraska, Mike moved to Texas in 1985. Having 12 years’ employment in the sign industry, he began his management career in 2010. During his management career he studied Non-Destructive Testing of welds on pressure vessels. Showing an interest in land surveying, he decided to broaden his career and recently joined The Pinnell Group, LLC in August of 2015 as an beginner rodman/chainman. After 5 months of experience, Mike is learning the robotic total station and GPS/RTK.

Even though Connor is still in high school, he is always eager to work in the field with his Dad and help locate boundary corners with the Shonsteadt and expose them with the shovel.  Holding the rod steady is still a challenge, but experience will make perfection.
