How long have you been involved with ICRI?
This is my first time being involved with ICRI and I hope to bring some hands-on field experience to the group. Although I’m new to this end of things, I have worked with several members and used many products members and their respective companies provide.
Why are you a member of ICRI?
Working mostly in the field on projects daily I don’t always have the opportunity to form relationships with the people who provide materials and services to our construction process. Being a part of ICRI gives me the ability to connect with many of these important industry partners, ultimately helping in providing a quality end product.
What do you do when you are not working?
Wake surfing, snowboarding, and watching motorsports (Formula 1 and MotoGP are my favorite). I also enjoy spending time with my wife and three year old daughter.
