September 5, 2020
Q: What has been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?
A: All the facets that I have been able to work on during the past 43 years. In the beginning of my career, I started out as a Crew Chief on a survey crew and then moved into Civil Engineering Site Design for two companies. Then I went to work for a couple of General Contractors, first as a Construction Superintendent on the largest hospital project in the history of the US. From there, I moved into Estimating and then Project Management. Later on, I worked for developers, working my way up to Vice President.
I can honestly say I have never had a boring day at work. It has been one exciting ride. The fun part of this business is going for a ride on Sunday and driving by all the properties I have been part of.

A: I really like the people. We have a good team that gets along very well, and we consistently turn out a lot of high-quality work.

A: 35 years in Construction Management plus eight in Engineering Design.
Q: What do you like to do outside of work?
A: I spend a lot of time with my family. My hobbies are boating and anything to do with cars.
Q: What part of work or life did you miss most during the pandemic?
A: Traveling with my family and going out to dinner with family and friends.
Q: Can you describe some of your career highlights?
