Top three or four “mountain peaks” from your career prior to your current position, if applicable.

I have completed complicated, fast track, design build construction projects for a variety of clients and a variety of project types. Notable projects, New Doylestown Hospital Emergency Wing and new Parking Garage, 900,000 sqft. PetSmart Warehouse with a 40,000 sqft.

Your history with sports, again top three or four mountain peaks.

Beginning in my sophomore year in high school I lettered in basketball and baseball. I was also a member of my high school’s inaugural varisity soccer team and scored the first goal in our school’s history.

How did you become a Christ follower?

I was raised in a church going home, but it wasn’t until the end of high school that I realized I didn’t know Christ in a personal level. I then met a group of people passionate about Him and learned that I too could have a personal relationship with Christ.
