  • Title: Office Manager
  • What is your greatest strength? Organization. Being organized is paramount when working on a bunchof different projects. Everyday I prioritize tasks and create a checklist before I get started.

  • Where were you born? Cocoa Beach, Florida. Moved to Oregon when I was very young.
  • What is your favorite tool? I'm a tech guy. I love new tech tools and anything that can streamline processes.
  • How did you you get started remodeling? I was helping my dad clean up job sites when I was 8 years old. I ventured off into beer and wine sales for 10 years but returned to work for the family business in 2015. I always felt a calling to work for the family and I'm happy that I made it home. 
  • How long have you been remodeling? I've been involved with project management and office management since 2015. I also worked on and off for the family business during high school and college.
  • What is the your favorite room of the your home? Why? The master bedroom. Having a retreat to unwind in so darn nice.
  • Who is my ideal client? My ideal client is one who is open to using technology and new methods to help develop a project. A client with a good sense of humor and that appreciates hard work.
  • Favorite trick of the trade? Buildertrend, I feel so lucky to be able to manage our jobs with our cloud based system. It makes managing projects 10x easier!
  • Do you know any remodeling myths? You should always get 3 bids. Not all bids are created equal and not all contractors are always bidding on the same thing. It's the apple and oranges deal. I'm a believer developing projects first and then putting some numbers to it.
  • What do people need to know before starting a remodel? It's not easy. It's not always fun. But it's always incredibly rewarding.
