1. How did you get into a career in construction?
I studied civil engineering in college and realized before I graduated that I didn’t want to sit behind a computer all day long doing design work. Construction management allows me to work on many different types of projects (no day is ever the same) and see the tangible benefits of the projects that we build.
2. What are some of your hobbies?
Kid’s sports (my daughter and son keep us busy!), golf, and fly fishing.
3. What is your dream vacation/favorite travel spot?
My wife and I honeymooned on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, and we go back every other year.
4. What is some advice you’d give to your 20-year-old self?
Focus on what’s important and the rest will take care of itself.
