What is the most exciting thing about working in this business? What is your professional passion?
What I love about construction is that it is truly a team sport. Each project we create is like a “big game.” The momentum is always changing, we’re all working together towards that common goal from start to finish…as a team. My passion is making people successful in that game and when you do that, no one loses.

What do you love to do when you aren’t at work?
I always love to spend time with my family and I also like to golf. Not even a full game just some practice hitting a few balls is relaxing for me.

What is your favorite quote?
”A person who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player.” – John Wooden, UCLA Basketball

What book has helped you most in your career?
The book “Good to Great” by Jim Collins has really helped me in my career. It taught me that great leaders must “combine extreme personal humility with intense professional will.”

Who was your mentor/biggest influence and what did they teach you?
My father used to say “work hard, stay positive and good things will happen” and that’s how he lived his life.
