I like to take on whatever projects I can fit on my plate, and often it can feel like I’m juggling quite a few of those plates at once. As long as you don’t drop anything, juggling acts like this are fun to watch, and I do what I can to help everyone enjoy their time here.
I have a passion to complete the job at hand, whatever it takes. My perseverance and dedication to get things done is something Triple Crown shares, and I enjoy working for a company where the quality of work being done is paramount. Other organizations might want to rush to the next project so they can squeeze as many contracts into a given period as possible, but it’s not like that here. We make sure the work is done well, on time, and meets the customer’s specifications.
Of course, this industry can throw the unexpected at you, and we need to remain flexible. I like the feeling of an unexpected challenge just around the corner, it keeps things exciting! One minute I can be working on takeoffs for the next proposal, and before I know it I’m on my way to help with a Habitat for Humanity project. It keeps life interesting, and rewarding.
I see myself as being a crucial part of the beginning of any job here at Triple Crown. My role involves analyzing the plans to get a solid grasp of what work is being requested—often what a client figures they’ll need doesn’t line up perfectly with what the project requires!—and then measure and quantify the amount of that work needed so that the estimator can place a value on it.
Outside of work I like to cook. Although my repertoire is limited to steaks, burgers, and Italian food, I make a mean homemade barbeque sauce! I enjoy a nice round of golf: having a beer and enjoying the fresh air is wonderful, and it’s a good thing I’m not overly competitive, because when it comes to golf, I rarely win.
Before I came here I worked both as a manager in Home Depot and owned a remodeling business for over a decade. The move to Triple Crown was a natural continuation of my construction expertise, but I knew pretty quickly that I fit in perfectly here. I’ve always gone by the adage “If you can’t find time to do it right the first time, how are you going to find time to go back and fix it?” and here we aim to do it right the first time, every time.
