What do you enjoy most about your profession?
The sense of accomplishment when we work together as a TEAM to put a bid out knowing we put our best effort towards it.
What project or job are you most proud of?
The Camp Pendleton Hay Barn project. This project was the first project I lead at an estimating capacity and for a client who is very important personally to me.
Who is your mentor and what is the most valuable thing you have learned from them?
Staff Sergeant Damian Garcia, to willingly face my fears and to live a life seeking discomfort, not only for my own development but to serve as an example for others to follow.
What is the most interesting or surprising thing about you?
I served 4 years in the United States Marine Corps and I played competitive roller hockey for 7 years.
What's the best piece of advice you have ever received (personal or professional)?
“You can’t stop time” This saying was used in Marine Corps boot camp to remind each other and ourselves that no matter how difficult things got, eventually time would pass. Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever.
