How did you get here?
As a child, I grew up around residential development as my parents were custom home builders. In college, I studied Construction Engineering Management and hired on with Skanska in 2011. I love the characteristics of this industry that are ever changing. Many relationships are created in the lifetime of a construction project as it requires a plethora of diverse contributors.

I spent 3 months this year working for our Commercial Development group in Bucharest Romania, and another month with the Skanska commercial development group in Seattle, WA.
If you could describe yourself in three words what would they be?

Favorite Travel Destination?
Florence, Italy....or Nashville
What is one goal you would like to achieve through CREW?
During my experiences with Skanska commercial development this year, I found I have a strong interest in the developers role. Through my membership with CREW I hope to improve my understanding of the developer's side.
