I grew up in Eugene and attended the University of Oregon, earning a bachelorís degree in Economics. During summer breaks, I worked as a carpenter for my uncleís construction firm in Portland. After graduating I moved to Portland and worked for my uncle full time, rising through the ranks. I enjoy working in construction, but missed my family and friends in Eugene. Now Iím happily back in my home town, doing the work I enjoy as a Project Superintendent for Essex. This is a great community to raise our family and to support the Ducks!
I canít seem to get enough construction. When the work week ends, I do my own construction. Iím currently doing a major renovation of our home. When the tool belt finally comes off, you might find me kiteboarding on the Columbia River Gorge, skiing in the Cascades, or spending time with my wife and family right here in Eugene.
