What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
Not a lot of people know that I’m a drummer and I’ve been playing ever since I could walk! My dad’s a great drummer so I grew up watching him play and without a single lesson, I taught myself how to play, and is one of my favorite pass times.

How did you get into construction?
I knew when I started taking computerized drafting programs in 8th grade that construction was the field I wanted to pursue. Throughout my education, I gathered all the tools I needed to be able to land an internship in the industry in the summer of my sophomore year in college.

What is one thing on your bucket list and will you accomplish it?
My bucket list contains many things that I look forward to completing but one that I wish to accomplish sooner rather than later is to own a 23’ center console boat to take out into the deep seas. I’ve been a fisherman my whole life and it’s been mostly freshwater, but I’ve always had a goal to fish the open ocean.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
For sure one of the craziest things I’ve ever done was try to attempt a double backflip into the ocean off Jaw’s bridge on Martha’s Vineyard. Doing just a single flip was getting too easy. When I tried to spice it up with a double, it ended with more of a back flop and some pain. Safe to say the last time I try that!
