Crowder, a graduate of both Colorado State University, and Colorado Mountain College got his degrees in Technical Journalism, Social Science, and Communications. After college, he began his career in the action sports industry with positions at ESPN and Burton Snowboards.
However, Crowder always knew he wanted to work in the pipeline inspection industry. After his time in the world of action sports, he landed at T.D. Williamson as a Data Analyst. This transition of industries wasn’t by accident or chance. “I was first introduced to the ILI business in my early teens as I watched a family member build Magpie Systems (an ILI company that was eventually acquired by T.D. Williamson). Because of that experience, I always knew I wanted to work in pipeline inspection,” Crowder shared.
