What is your favorite thing about being an HBA member?

Serving with fellow members with the purpose and intention to improve and preserve our industry in ways that make positive impacts in our community.

What has been your favorite project at your company?

I love working with our team on the design of our homes. Our process allows us to see the touch of our work in the finished product that creates a feeling home for us all. This approach builds a family dynamic within our team that is invaluable.

What has been your favorite HBA|GBR event? Why?

The most recent one for me was the Construction Ahead panel. Absorbing the knowledge and outlook from the diversified panel was key in setting some navigational ideas and paths for the challenges of today’s market.

What is one industry-related thing you learned in the past month?

The importance of adaptability.

What was your first job?

My very first job was working with my dad who was a plumber. We had a small family business. Me and my two older brothers grew up working side by side with him when we were not in school. We learned the meaning of hard work, integrity, and invaluable life lessons with an amazing dad as our teacher. I have some of the fondest memories from that life stage.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

That’s hard to answer with all the advice I’ve received in my life which I think is key to be open minded to. I think what I have been impacted the most from a business standpoint is to never accept complacency. Always drive and strive to find ways to continue improving in every aspect, paying attention to all the details and coach, mentor, encourage and motivate others in the same ways.

Three words that best describe you:

Loyal, compassionate, selfless.

Your Family?

My wife, Terry and I have been married for 24 years and we have a 15-year-old son, Tommy. We enjoy spending time together outdoors as a family and exploring new adventures in new places.
