Career Story

I began my career working for a local wood roof/floor component manufacturer in Westminster, MD. I designed open-web roof/floor trusses for a couple of years before starting an engineering division for Apex Technology in December of 2008.

Relying on the experience I had gained from being a component designer and with the support of senior engineers at Apex, I was able to grow the Mid-Atlantic division of the firm with a focus on being an engineering office that was a friend to the component industry. Understanding the processes that were followed by component designers has been a key to forging lasting relationships that have been greatly beneficial to our goals as an engineering division.

One the biggest lessons I have learned is understanding the importance of building a staff with the right team members. I am very proud of the team we have assembled and their willingness to learn, teach and serve those around them, daily. Whether it be a fellow employee, customer or friend in the industry, serving others is the focus of our Mid-Atlantic team.

Personal Touch

I love playing soccer in different leagues, but since the birth of my daughter and recent move to the Raleigh, NC area, that has taken a back seat. I look forward to joining some new leagues here, soon. I also enjoy following the Premier League and rooting for my family’s favorite team, Crystal Palace!

Industry Involvement

Apex Mid-Atlantic is an active member of a number of local industry organizations including the SBCAMBIA and NVBIA. Over the past years, I have been able to get to know several of the local jurisdictions and building officials and through those relationships, have been able to give presentations to the Maryland Building Official Organization (MBOA) and local jurisdictions on IRC wall bracing design requirements and best practices.
