1. How did you get into a career in construction?
After the Navy provided a full ROTC scholarship and I fulfilled my initial service obligation, I transferred into the Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps where I was fortunate to have several great construction management experiences.
2. Where did you grow up?
My hometown is Franklin near Nashville, Tennessee. After growing up on Guam, I attended high school and college in that area and recently relocated back to support MBP’s growth in the booming Nashville area.
3. What is your dream vacation/favorite travel spot?
My favorite travel spot is Japan for its friendly people, fascinating culture (traditional and trendy), great food (and not just Japanese!), and beautiful scenery.
