“I enjoy meeting new team members and owners on each project. I have a passion to help my owners successfully navigate a complex process where ultimately I feel I can meet their goals and dreams. This is not a job for me, this is a journey with a new group of people striving to meet business goals. At the end of a job I hope to have a new group of friends that can reflect on the journey!”
