I am from a construction family, 5th Generation at least, and was wanting to try my hand at something other than construction when I elected my college career path of finance. Upon graduation in December 2001 it was bad timing to enter the financial market segment following the tragedy of 9/11 so I decided to revert back to construction temporarily until the market re-stabilized. I went to work for Austin Commercial where I fell in love with the operational aspects of building large commercial projects. I decided then that construction was my passion and my future.
