I enjoy spending my free time cooking, barbequing, entertaining, and spending time with family and friends. I have always enjoyed hunting and fishing and look forward to having a little more time for both in the future. Golf has always been an interest of mine, but my game needs a lot of work; and pickleball has become a new sensation for me. I also enjoy spending time at my farm, whether putzing around on the tractors or the track loader or just relaxing riding around the trails with a 'cold one'.

I work in construction because I’m a builder and that’s what builders do. It’s in my DNA. I get excited about finding creative solutions to challenging problems. Hours fly by when I’m actively engaged in the building process. I love not only the results, but the process as well. In my “spare time” at home with my wife and three sons the majority of my time is spent building things and working on projects together. If I’m not building something I’m probably in the middle of planning the next project. I wake up with thoughts about building things and I daydream about how to build them better. Working in construction is truly the intersection of my greatest passion and God-given talents. It’s what I love to do, and what I’m good at.
