“My passion in life has been building great companies, projects and people. During the journey, developing long-lasting relationships, key processes and measurable metrics to guide great results. I listened and learned in my nearly 35+ years of experience where I participated in over 150 projects, worked with 1000s of amazing and equally passionate people who supported my growth. I am most happy to return to building projects at this point in my career to give back and contribute knowledge developed though lessons learned and best practices over a career that has never felt like work.”
