Personal Highlights

What does “Making Our Clients Look Great” mean to you?

Our clients have clients (or customers) as well. When our clients present the space to their end-users, and their superiors, we want them to be proud of the final product. We want to deliver a quality construction result that makes our clients look great by providing a result their clients will love, and consequently our client’s superiors can’t help but love too.  

How would you describe your job to a bunch of five-year-old’s?

My job is kind of like art class. Some days, we are coloring without a coloring book, other days we are painting by number, and the next day we are doing papier-mache.

What do you like to do on your days off?

On my days off, I enjoy reading or listening to audio books. I also love spending time with my family and participating in activities my kids like, including watching movies with my daughter. On Sundays, I look forward to speaking with my son who is in the army.
