Always do the “right” thing. Follow your values.
ADETS – Alcohol and Drug Education Traffic School. I was a teacher.
Person you most admire
I admire teachers who can teach our children, especially now. I admire writers who weave stories to capture our imaginations and/or our hearts. I also admire leaders who can bring teams together to find a better answer than any one side could ever envision on their own.
Goal yet to be achieved
Lead an effort to change the lives of others for the better. I want to leave this world having contributed to making it a better place.
Most influential book
“Confessions of a Radical Industrialist: Profits, People, Purpose — Doing Business by Respecting the Earth,” by Ray Anderson.

How long have you been in the construction industry?
20+ years (No way am I giving my age away.)
What inspired you to pursue a career in construction?
A twist and a turn. What kept me there was Bob Street’s belief in the power and good of people.
