Superintendent

Hometown: I was born in New Jersey,  spent my childhood in Wyoming till the age of 11 then moved to North Carolina.

What pushed me to construction: I got my start in construction very early during summers working with my father.  I was helping with his small remodeling, decking, roofing, handyman business as soon as I could handle a hammer, shovel, broom and dustpan.  I always wanted to be as good as my father and spend as much time with him as possible.  Working with him brought me much happiness and pride.

What jobs have I held: In between my many odd jobs and after restaurant remodeling, I moved back to my passion of home remodeling/building. I have been with Carolina Classic Builders for 8 years now and has allowed me to hone in my love and passion for construction and customer service.

My biggest professional accomplishment:   An elaborate deck remodel.  I performed 100% of the job by myself in under twelve days – including demolition!

What I like to do outside of work: I enjoy saltwater fishing, tinkering with furniture building, hiking, snowboarding and cooking!  I am a large man and this engine takes premium fuel!

My passions: Being able to stand back after a job and saying to myself,  “This is a job my father would be proud to say  my son did this with the knowledge I passed on.”  I am most passionate about my family.  I love teaching my three children and passing on knowledge I gained from previous generations.

My favorite quote: “Mother is the word for God in the lips and hearts of all children”  William Makepeace Thackeray and “An army of sheep led by a lion is far better than an army of lions led by a sheep.”  Alexander the Great
