Hobbies

I enjoy great in-person conversations with my wife and friends. I enjoy being outdoors: paintball, football, basketball, trail running, and sand volleyball. Most of all I enjoy living life to the fullest and enjoying quality time with people in life.

My Experiences

NORR

2018 - present

Project Manager

As an international firm, I have had the ability to work across the United States and Canada. My role allows me to oversee and direct the project team from initial concept conversation to post-occupancy evaluation.

The bulk of my work has been with a client that designs and builds interior commercial and restaurants within airports and transportation plazas. This was a fairly new client, I was brought on board to help get our internal team organized and build a client relationship that would allow us to become one of the supergroups that provide architectural services to this global client.  The projects I managed included, but not limited to, concepts such as Brewery Bars, Veggie Grill, Pret A Manger, and Starbucks to name a few.

As a motivated self-starter, I foresaw the needs that come with a large number of young professionals that fill the firm. That approach of mentorship and helping to create more training style on-boarding helped the firm continue to improve and standardize processes while motivating others to see the value in being proactive.

One of my passions has been the ability to compose and build on individual teammates productivity by providing them the guidance and tools to help them be successful.

Project Manager and Marketing Director

As a firm, we have been recognized for many local and regional awards. I have been involved in a variety of projects and responsibilities. Including adaptive reuse, education (k-12 & higher education), commercial, civic, electric cooperative, judicial, company re-branding, qualification packets, and website management.

The firm operates as an open studio with a generally autonomous approach directed by a mentoring guidance. As a motivated self-starter I foresaw needs that come with growth, I took the initiative to led new workflows and trial new software. That approach helped the firm continue to improve and standardize processes while motivating others to see the value in being proactive.

One of my passions has been those initial design phases. When sketching is the best form of communication to start to understanding needs and unique characteristics of a project.

Call Center Floor Support

I found communication success with call center phone support. That led me to be ranked #5 out of 600. This helped me to understand the value of raising my team’s morale and knowledge.
