GET TO KNOW HIM:

What has been your favorite project at CASCO + R|5?

The Olivette Gateway Development in Olivette, MO. We are currently working on the civil site design for the 15-acre project and it is a pleasure working on such a high-profile, local project with such a great team.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within, whose job would you want?

I feel I have the perfect role at this moment and wouldn’t trade it with anyone in the company. I knew initially accepting a position to start and organically grow a department would be challenging, but I’ve enjoyed the journey so far and I’m looking forward to our continued success.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

I would like to have the ability to clone myself and have that clone just read and respond to emails.

People would be surprised if they knew:

How well versed I am with ‘80s and ‘90s movies.
