After a few years with the family business, he moved onto commercial design build firms as project accountant where job costing, and the love of numbers became his world. He spent 10 years on the coastal shores of Delaware working with custom home builders up and down the shores of Delaware and Maryland.

He moved to Seattle in 2011 and joined Potter Construction in 2018. After 35 years of construction, he still finds excitement in every new project.
