Born into a steel mill family in Cleveland, Ohio, I learned the values of hard work, discipline, and organization from my parents at an early age. Unfinished work was never tolerated, and timelines became second nature in my family, as molten steel doesn’t wait. After high school, I interned for an engineering firm while pursuing my degree at Cuyahoga Community College. I entered the medical field at the very bottom of the totem pole, eventually rising to the position of manager for OPTUM Clinics in Houston, a subsidiary of United Health Group, a Fortune 25 company. During that time, I oversaw the opening of numerous clinics and conducted quality control on clinic construction.
After leaving the corporate world in 2014, I transitioned into ground-up building and renovating historic houses for myself, completing over 20+ houses between 2014 and 2017. In 2018 I started offering my services to public. For the past 6 years, I have been actively engaged in building and renovating houses and commercial spaces from the ground up.
