My dad was a civil engineer and used to bring home pictures from his job sites he would visit periodically. That piqued my interest in construction at an early age. I have now been in the industry for over 25 years. My first internship with a GC was at a children’s hospital remodel project. When I saw how construction could really affect the lives of others and help people, I knew I wanted to build in the healthcare field. I have been able to build healthcare projects ranging from $25,000 to $260M. I enjoy being part of the entire development process, from site selection to concept to actual construction. The team of people I work with are very knowledgeable and always willing to help me learn and sharpen my development skills. When you enjoy the team of people you work with you enjoy where you are.
I was athletic growing up and was involved in high school soccer, swimming, and golf. During the summer between my junior and senior year of high school I found my favorite sport, bicycle racing. I knew that I wanted to try and be a professional athlete or do something in construction. While at Oregon State University I raced for the cycling team, qualifying for Collegiate nationals twice. I was fortunate enough to take this to the next level and raced on a Pro/Cat 1/UCI Elite level for roughly eight years. During my time of sports, I learned that nothing comes easy. It is hard work, dedication and teamwork that gets you where you want to be in life.
I currently live with my wife Anne Marie and three boys, Jacob, Cayden, and Thad. We enjoy a good beach vacation and creating cherished memories together. I also still enjoy getting out on my bike for a good hard ride with my friends.
