I’m a far cry away from those pre-college days when I commuted to work in a dune buggy and installed chain link fencing. But my career path from then through general contracting, civil engineering design, mechanical contracting to my leadership role at UMC all have one thing in common—I am learning new things all the time. Since 2000, with my work on large industrial projects like the Brightwater Treatment Plant to the significant commercial construction projects I am involved in today, UMC has opened a whole new world to me. I enjoy the journey of discovery, education and critical thinking to get to solutions that work. I relish in the endless possibilities this dynamic, ever-changing industry holds. One thing I know for sure, we can’t bury our heads in the sand; we must embrace whatever the future brings.
