About Us

Activities and Associations:

Tim Franklin

Graduated from Virginia Tech with degrees in building construction and civil engineering. After graduation, Tim joined TOMCAT, USA, a frontrunner in aluminum fabrication serving the entertainment industry. Tim then joined Stagecraft, a set construction company. Wanting a broader and more technical experience, Tim joined Geiger Engineers where he grew to become an Associate. Working at Geiger allowed Tim to combine his knowledge of the demands of the challenging entertainment industry with his growing technical knowledge. Seeking a change of venue, Theta Consulting was formed.

Krista Schnitzler 

Joined Theta in 2009 with a background in marketing and operations. After working in the insurance industry and the corporate world, she was ready to actually see what she was contributing to. Managing the business side has proven to be an ever-changing puzzle with new opportunities at every turn.  Never one to enjoy physics and formulas in her spare time, she has come to appreciate the art of engineering design.

Dan Louis 

Joined Theta Consulting in March of 2012 and brought with him three years of structural design experience spent mostly in the heavy construction/bridge industry.  He also brought with him his Keurig machine which has greatly improved the office morale. Dan was intrigued by Theta Consulting’s wide range of interesting projects in their portfolio and was lucky enough to be brought on as a full time employee. After deciding that 25 years of life in New Jersey was long enough, Dan was also interested in Theta’s proximity to his family and friends in Bucks County, PA.  Since joining the firm, Dan has enjoyed the day to day challenges of working in a busy firm with many varied projects on its plate, and is grateful for the opportunity to gain experience in several aspects of structural engineering. Dan aims to be a reliable, loyal asset and looks forward to providing our clients with the timely and efficient service they deserve. Dan has adjusted nicely to the ways of life and severe traffic problems in Eastern PA and is enjoying life with his wife Allison and 3 daughters.

Theta’s staff is rounded out with English Bulldogs who are passionate about the supervision of the owners. MoGo, senior associate, has proven to be very adept with product testing and destruction. Stilton, the newest associate, is energetic and client focused – providing  a warm reception for all. They all look forward to working with clients’ new challenges.

Theta has been fortunate to have had several associates contribute to the firm who have since moved on. Edison, the original mainecoon associate, had been with the Tim since his days in Texas and was intimately involved in all Tim’s years of experience. Boutros, the original bulldog associate, started with Tim when the firm began in 2003, bringing his seven years of experience to the table. Thatcher grew up in the firm and dedicated his 15 years to keeping the owners out of trouble. Pelham also grew up in the firm and spent his days trying to get the owners into trouble.
