About me

I started in the construction industry when I was 14 years old and quickly fell in love with the work. Since then I have worked for local contractors and have done countless remodels and several homes in Northern Colorado. Along the way I graduated from UNC with a B.S in Sports and Exercise Science. My true passion is construction and building new things and I love introducing students to careers in construction.
