CPE, DBIA, Senior Estimator
For more than 40 years, I’ve been involved in virtually every facet of construction and estimating, including owning and operating a concrete and construction company for 17 years. I came to Aspen Group because I could sense the heart of the company to enhance not only the building structure, but also the ministry of the church. This fit well with my future goals, and I’m thankful for the ability to serve in any way possible.
Since I’ve been with Aspen Group, I’ve served as Field Construction Manager, Project Manager, Estimator, and currently as Senior Estimator and Preconstruction Manager. Outside of Aspen Group, I serve as Vice President of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE). I hold Certified Professional Estimator (CPE) and Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) professional certifications. I’ve been married for 41 years, and my wife and I have four children, ten grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
The Most Rewarding Aspect of My Job
Seeing the actual ministry in operation after the building is complete, and the privilege of being a small part of the process.
Outside of Work
Reading, sailing in summer, and downhill snow skiing in winter. Spiritual health is critical and physical health plays an important role. I enjoy reading and sharing healthy lifestyle living with those who choose to listen.
Words to Live By
“Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it.” David Starr Jordan
“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”
– Psalm 127:1
