I grew up in Roseburg and moved Ashland to attend Southern Oregon University where I was able to be a part of the football team. After 2 years I decided to move to Eugene to attend the University of Oregon. I worked as a construction laborer and carpenter throughout my years at UO to pay for college. It turns out that I really enjoy construction. After graduating with a B.A. in Political Science, I continued working in the field. My employer at the time sent me out of town a lot, so I decided to look for another firm to join. Essex reached out, and I was happy to make the switch. Iíve worked my way up at Essex and am now a Project Engineer.
When Iím not working, Iím fishing. Fly fishing to be specific. I do most of my fishing in Central and Eastern Oregon, and look forward to exploring more great places to fish.
