Experience: Project List


With over 20 years experience in the design and construction industry, I have acquired a broad portfolio of experience in several core markets of construction. Having started my career working in design, I was able to obtain a fluency in the industry that few are lucky enough to experience.  Then, with the last 17 years working for a large Commercial General Contractor, I have acquired a broad based field experience managing projects from conception to keys; implementing project controls, construction and value engineering reviews and developing a plan for project execution.
