Why did you choose to enter the Construction Industry?

Since I was a little boy I always wanted to build. I love the people, relationships, and seeing the finished project. I have enjoyed leading people and teams and growing and devloping young talent in the industry.

Who inspires you?

My mom, because she was a single mother who raised my sister and me. She worked hard and always provided for us which taught me how to work hard and provide for my family. She always made sure we were in church and helping others.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

I believe that my greatest achievement is developing relationships within the industry that have lasted the duration of my career. I am still working with some of my first clients and subcontractors to this day.
