Canaan Forslund

Senior Specialist




Canaan joined Pie as a specialist after discovering his passion for structural and mechanical forensic analysis during his internship. He graduated from Colorado School of Mines with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Canaan provides forensic engineering services including claims investigations and failure analysis, as well as quality assurance field observations. Canaan specializes in full time observation work and enjoys the opportunity It provides to travel and get to know the locations and teams he works with for an extended time.

Canaan likes to spend his free time practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, backpacking, and playing violin. Before his engineering career, Canaan served in the US Marine Corps with 1st Battalion, 4th Marines and deployed twice overseas. Both growing up in a military family and enlisting himself, Canaan was drawn to Colorado to be closer to his family and to take advantage of the outdoor activities the state offers.
