Career Story

I was fortunate to join Apex in October 1997, after graduating from the University of Florida. Apart from a 2-year hiatus with a commercial design group, I have been proud to serve with Apex for over 20 years. Whether it be through the continuous improvement of our own team structure, smarter design strategies or streamlining the documentation process, we continue to search for ways to eliminate waste in residential planning and construction. My passion through the years continues to be the relentless pursuit of optimized residential construction work.

Personal Touch

I love to swim. My accomplishments include raising $2,900 for Juvenile Diabetes by completing a 5-mile Ocean Swim in 2015, completing a 4.5-mile swim across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in 2016, and most recently, capturing a 3rd Place relay team finish at an Ironman competition in Chattanooga, TN. I enjoy Sunday evenings on the porch with my wife. I love to bowl with my son and spend a lot of time at the barn with my daughter. After all, without family, what’s it all for?
