Favorite project:



“Throughout the course of my career I have had the opportunity to complete large scale sitework projects, construct roadways, install infrastructure systems, build water/sewage treatment plants, as well as public parks/recreation facilities, pools and homes but never all in one site. I am looking forward to seeing these elements and more come together on the 65 acre Arboretum project. I am sure that the future residents will be as excited to live there as our team is to build it.”
