I am a seasoned professional with nearly 35 years in the construction industry. My diverse background includes experience as a designer, owner representative, program manager, but first and foremost leading large CM At Risk projects.

As a Project Director, I have proven to be a valuable asset on several large and complex projects where my sense of order and discipline have helped to manage the significant changes and obstacles with which these projects typically faced.
