What was your first job? Working at my grandfather’s salvage yard periodically throughout the summer.
What was your professional “aha” moment? The first time a project I had worked on was built, I knew that I had chosen the right profession.
What about your job would shock clients? I think my clients would be shocked at how competitive I am about my job and how I strive to treat every project like it is my only project.
What did you learn the hard way? Trust yourself and your instincts. Sometimes that is a better indicator than any information.
What’s your most treasured possession? Good friends and my kayak. No better recharge time than spending some time on a beautiful Ozarks stream with some good friends.
