There are many things I enjoy about the construction industry, but the satisfaction of working on a project and getting to drive by it for years to come knowing I had a role in building it is my favorite. I also enjoy the challenge of working with clients to make their dreams reality while striving to exceed their expectations
A few quotes I live by are “The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.” – John Maxwell and “If you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time.” – Patrick Lencioni
I’m an avid traveler, having visited 47 states, 23 national parks, and four Canadian provinces
My hobbies include classic vehicles, off-roading, guns, metal fabrication, remodeling, and traveling – especially to the northwest Rocky Mountain regions and northeast Appalachian Mountain regions.
