“I love sports and competition.  From Little League, high school sports and intramurals to Saturday mornings at the golf course and workouts at Ultimate Crossfit, I have always had the competitive fire to win and be the best I can be.  That same competitive fire pushed me to succeed in the classroom and has continued to do so throughout my career in the construction industry.  I want every project that I work on to be the best and the most successful, and that only comes by continuing to improve and striving to succeed.”
