I have 12 years experience in the construction industry. This experience ranges from skilled labor in trades such
as commercial framing, steel erection to underground utilities. I bring these lessons and practical skills with
me into management through a university education in construction management. It is this back ground that
has enabled me to work at some of the worlds leading firms on projects that range from $25,000.00 to over
$100,000,000.00. I now hope to be of service to you and your firm
